You'll need to write the rules for compilation yourself.

No idea where these would belong well.  libdir would probably seem best.
automake probably forbids you to use lib_DATA, but you can work around
it with something like
  modula_exec_dir = $(libdir)
  modula_exec_DATA = foo.o ...

(the 'exec' part is to get things installed at 'make install-exec'

Well, then forget my above about $(libdir) and instead find out where
your compiler looks for them.  Then use that directory, I guess.  I'd
write a configure test that tries to find out from the compiler; or
let the user supply one.
