I'm using automake-1.9.6 and am having problems with texinfo files and a read only source tree. In my generated, there is the following suffix rule:
   restore=: && backupdir="$(am__leading_dot)am$$$$" && \
   am__cwd=`pwd` && cd $(srcdir) && \
   rm -rf $$backupdir && mkdir $$backupdir && \
   if ($(MAKEINFO) --version) >/dev/null 2>&1; then \
for f in $@ address@hidden address@hidden $([0-9] $([0-9][0-9]; do \
       if test -f $$f; then mv $$f $$backupdir; restore=mv; else :; fi; \
     done; \
   else :; fi && \
   cd "$$am__cwd"; \
    -o $@ $<; \
   then \
     rc=0; \
     cd $(srcdir); \
   else \
     rc=$$?; \
     cd $(srcdir) && \
     $$restore $$backupdir/* `echo "./$@" | sed 's|[^/]*$$||'`; \
   fi; \
   rm -rf $$backupdir; exit $$rc

Of particular interest is it explicitly goes to the source directory (read only) and tries to create a backup directory there. Obviously this will fail if the source directory is read only.


Is this a bug or am I doing something illegal to ever trigger this rule?
