It may be possible to use ctags' -a/--append option here.  Maybe having
'make ctags' run in $top_builddir do something like rm -f $top_builddir/ctags.
After that, the 'make ctags' target in all subdirectories appends to
$top_builddir/ctags using 'ctags -a $top_builddir/ctags'.

If that vague description sounds useful, I'll take a pass at getting it working.
Let me know.  If that's not something you think generally useful, I'm happy to
stick to ctags -R for my own work.
