Re: "make distclean" broken?

Given that we have to remain as backwards compatible as possible while
still trying to allow usage of latest autotool versions, commit
26b0cb6ae2 has been pushed in order to fix the 'distclean' and
'maintainer-clean' target issues triggered when using automake 1.14.

For those unaware of this, it should be noticed than when building
libcurl project with automake 1.14, option 'subdir-objects' is used
for automake initialization and configuration which implies that there
are some subtle differences relative to build-time object file

Hopefully nothing too dreadful should arise with this change, and as
usual if anyone finds out any issue we'll try to do our best in order
to fix or workaround it.

Test, test test...
