Hi Fred,

Sorry for the late answer, I overlooked your message earlier.
I hope it's still of value to you.

There are possibilities for doing this, and if you want to pursue it,
you should probably look into subdir-objects and building the library
in the topleven dirs in the first place.

However, I don't think that is what you should do.  It sounds like you
want something like the
  make install
step, except that your installed tree coincides with your build tree.
May I suggest to rethink this design.  There are very good reasons to
have them separate.  For example, you can always just throw away the
build tree and still keep using the install tree.  There is more
documentation about this in the Automake manual.

Hope that helps a little.
