[PATCH] configure: explicitly use subdir-objects in automake init

From: Dave Reisner <>
Date: Mon, 8 Jul 2013 09:13:14 -0400

This avoids a large warning on invocation of ./buildconf on automake

  automake: warning: possible forward-incompatibility.
  automake: At least a source file is in a subdirectory, but the 'subdir-objects'
  automake: automake option hasn't been enabled. For now, the corresponding output
  automake: object file(s) will be placed in the top-level directory. However,
  automake: this behaviour will change in future Automake versions: they will
  automake: unconditionally cause object files to be placed in the same subdirectory
  automake: of the corresponding sources.
  automake: You are advised to start using 'subdir-objects' option throughout your
  automake: project, to avoid future incompatibilities.

Rather than pepper all the's with the option, initialize
automake with subdir-objects as the default behavior.
