copy check_SCRIPTS to build directory

I have 25 unit tests that each process an SQL script:

        t0001 < t0001.sql
        t0002 < t0002.sql
        (Yeah, we planned for a lot of tests!)  

I like to use a separate build directory, per the Autobook's advice.  How
do I tell automake to copy the scripts to the build directory?  

Since there is no requirement to modify the script, I didn't want to
bother with a makefile rule that converts, say, to t0001.sql.
 I have tried:

SQL_DIST =      t0001.sql t0002.sql ...

check_SCRIPTS   = $(SQL_DIST)

        ln -s $(srcdir)/$@ .

but no joy.  

Many thanks for any advice.
