Yes, write this:
  foo_SOURCES = x/ xx/ ..

It's very wise to not set VPATH yourself when using Automake.  Do you do
that only so you can save writing a few bytes of path names, or is there
some deeper trickery going on?  Automake otherwise makes use of VPATH
itself to allow you to have build trees separate from source trees.
