Good advice, Ralf.  I've done just that.  Now I have the freedom to add any 
recursive targets I need.

I used find with sed to insert into the top of all of my files:

find -name '' -exec sed -i '1i\include 
$(top_srcdir)/config/\n' {} \;

All I need to do is add a few lines to my to add additional 
recursive targets, if I ever need them.  I could probably have removed the -am 
target stuff, right?  Oh, well.  There were only a handful of files 
which had a check_PROGRAMS target, so in those files I've added:

        $(MAKE) $(AM_MAKEFLAGS) $(check_PROGRAMS)

The contents of are:

# Modified to use our own recursive targets.
# This directory's subdirectories are mostly independent; you can cd
# into them and run `make' without going through this Makefile.
# To change the values of `make' variables: instead of editing Makefiles,
# (1) if the variable is set in `config.status', edit `config.status'
#     (which will cause the Makefiles to be regenerated when you run `make');
# (2) otherwise, pass the desired values on the `make' command line.
        @fail= failcom='exit 1'; \
        for f in x $$MAKEFLAGS; do \
          case $$f in \
            *=* | --[!k]*);; \
            *k*) failcom='fail=yes';; \
          esac; \
        done; \
        dot_seen=no; \
        target=`echo $@ | sed s/-recursive//`; \
        list='$(SUBDIRS)'; for subdir in $$list; do \
          echo "Making $$target in $$subdir"; \
          if test "$$subdir" = "."; then \
            dot_seen=yes; \
            local_target="$$target-am"; \
          else \
            local_target="$$target"; \
          fi; \
          ($(am__cd) $$subdir && $(MAKE) $(AM_MAKEFLAGS) $$local_target) \
          || eval $$failcom; \
        done; \
        if test "$$dot_seen" = "no"; then \
