Hi Ralf,

MULTITARGETS = elc-stamp
elc_stamp_TARGETS = $(ELCFILES)
elc_stamp_SOURCES = $(ELFILES)
elc_stamp_COMMAND = \
for f in : $(elc_stamp_SOURCES); do \
  test "$$f" != : || continue; \
  touch "$${f}c"; \

Something like this is exactly what would help me. For instance, I'm
thinking I could do,

  MULTITARGETS = gen-foo
  gen_foo_TARGETS = $(srcdir)/foo.xml $(abs_top_srcdir)/
  gen_foo_SOURCES = foo.h foo.c
  gen_foo_COMMAND = python $(abs_top_srcdir)/ $(srcdir)/foo.xml

is that correct? Also, how would I tell automake that this should be
done at BUILT_SOURCES time?

This would also work for flex/bison in the case that Mike Mueller asked
