Sorry about that.
I try to sum up:
I'd like to build my application as VPATH. 
However, I do need data and scripts to finalize the build of my
application (basically, I have macro that I need to compile before
shipping it). But, here is my problem, these files are still in the
source tree and not in the VPATH tree.

Both, I need them at building time: myscript calls the binaries to
transform the myData.sci to myData.bin.
And they are both needed for my application at runtime.
