As someone who has built fairly complex build systems that
support srcdir != blddir using standard make, i'm skeptical.
I've never had to do that.

Though there is usually a better way to construct your rules, at
the bare minimum this transform always works:

  foo: ${srcdir}/bar ${srcdir}/baz ${srcdir}/quux
       foocmd $@ $<

to

  FOOSRC=${srcdir}/bar ${srcdir}/baz ${srcdir}/quux
  foo: ${FOOSRC}
       foocmd $@ ${FOOSRC}

Maybe you could point me to the relevant parts of our Makefile?
