Make these changes in your files.  They will end up in, and finally Makefile.

You can limit yourself to those files in which libraries are
built.  You can also consider using a nonrecursive Makefile structure.
For the latter, it's helpful to know about Automake `include' statements
and the Automake option subdir-objects (looking at other packages that
do this helps, too).
