Ok, fair enough.  But what's the easiest way to create a new recursive target 
such as checkprogs?  Hopefully there's a more or less automatic way using 
automake.  I have quite a few subdirectories each with a few test program 
directories so it would be tedious to make this change.  Is there some way to 
tap into the RECURSIVE_TARGETS variable?
