In this case, I have a top-level, and the place where I'm
seeing the problem is in libntp/, which has traditionally
built libntp.a (a convenience library used by several other programs in
the distribution), and libntp.a is built from a whack of files in
libntp/ and also from a whack of files in lib/isc/*, where lib and
libntp are at the same level of the tree, and there are no
files in lib/ or any of its subdirs.

A truly bored person would grab a recent NTP tarball and just add
"subdir-objects" to the AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE line in the top-level (there are several places where we invoke in
subdirs) and run either 'autoreconf' or the top-level ./bootstrap

While I'd greatly appreciate any help on this, I don't expect anybody
else to be that ... motivated and I will, of course, keep slogging away
at this.
