Subpackage distclean removed parent package dep files

We have been try to port GRUB2's build system to automake.  GRUB2
build needs to make use of two different compilers (HOSTCC and
TARGETCC) for compiling grub-utilities and grub-binaries respectively.
 So, we started using nested packages approach, where top-level builds grub-utilities using HOSTCC, and nested
package's use TARGETCC for compiling

As of now, we are able to build build both packages successfully,
except that make distcheck fails when it is run from top-level.  It is
failing in its distclean step, where subpackage's distclean seems to
remove .Po files that belong to top-level package (We use
subdir-objects option).

How can we fix this?  Is our approach of using two possible compilers
this way reasonable?
