Did you read ? your version of automake is modern... and you need to
add the --subdir-objects on its command line. Just thanks the break of
backward compatibility in the development line of automake. (that's a
new option, that must be set to keep the same behaviour that previous
version had, and it is not recognized or even ignored without error by
older version).

Yet another great powerful fertilizer, isn't it ?
