If I add them as a substituted variable in _SOURCES automake will complain:

"7.1.3 Conditional compilation of sources

You can't put a configure substitution (e.g., @FOO@ or $(FOO) where FOO
is defined via AC_SUBST) into a _SOURCES variable. The reason for this
is a bit hard to explain, but suffice to say that it simply won't work.
Automake will give an error if you try to do this."

If I add them explicitly the infrastructure build them all. But the
power5.s is supposed to be used only on POWER5 platforms, x86.s only on
32 bit x86, and so on.

I'll put together a *very* small test case and post it next. Tgz is ok?

I just feel more comfortable writing sh conditionals in
than I feel doing it in
