From subdirectories);

  By default, Automake generates `Makefiles' which work depth-first
  (`postfix').  However, it is possible to change this ordering.  You can
  do this by putting `.' into `SUBDIRS'.  For instance, putting `.'
  first will cause a `prefix' ordering of directories.  All `clean'
  targets are run in reverse order of build targets.

I don't recall whether ancient automake supports the `.' option in SUBDIRS.
Probably not.  You are fighting against all the bugs and misfeatures that
have been fixed over the last five years of automake development if you
insist on staying with automake-1.4 (I branched for the 1.4px series in
early 2001).
