$(builddir) is always equal to '.'; also, non-GNU makes don't identify
FILE and ./FILE; so you are better off omitting '$(builddir)/', in both
target name and command text.

ok. I feared that it could break distcheck without $(builddir) but it seems not, at least with automake 1.10.

With automake 1.10 or 1.11, there is no problem. But with automake
1.9, builddir seems empty and the command:

rm -f /eina_almagamation.c

is executed.

No idea why that happens though.  Might have forgotten the reason.

maybe someone will remember :)

thank you
