Auto load at startup

for auto-loading elisp libraries at startup from a custom directory,
I though it was necessary to add something like

(add-to-list 'load-path "~/.my_elisp_dir/")

but it seems like emacs don't care of subdirs of my_elisp_dir.
Thus I have errors at startup if I add some

(require 'package)

if the named package is in a subdir.

But i put inside my_elisp_dir a file subdirs.el that *sould* have load these packages ?

Also, i found the following in the emacswiki :

,----[ Including subdirectories ]
| By default Emacs doesn't include subdirectories of a directory
| which is added to load-path. But you can do it by issuing a command
| in startup file:
| (normal-top-level-add-subdirs-to-load-path)
| which will add all subdirs of current directory. Note: current directory | is not necessary that one, where your script is executed at the moment.
| So you first need to change directory to required one:
| (progn (cd "~/elisp") (normal-top-level-add-subdirs-to-load-path))
| In this example assumed that you want to add all subdirs of ~/elisp directory.

I tried this tip that seems to work, but I would like to understand why the subdirs.el fails/isn't sufficient.

Thanks for help
