      Description

      The autoreconf procedure complains like this:

      [...]
      libtoolize: copying file `m4/lt~obsolete.m4'
      configure.ac:25: installing 'build-aux/compile'
      xsec/Makefile.am:370: warning: source file 'canon/XSECC14n20010315.cpp' is in a subdirectory,
      xsec/Makefile.am:370: but option 'subdir-objects' is disabled
      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.
      xsec/Makefile.am:370: warning: source file 'canon/XSECXMLNSStack.cpp' is in a subdirectory,
      xsec/Makefile.am:370: but option 'subdir-objects' is disabled
      xsec/Makefile.am:370: warning: source file 'canon/XSECCanon.cpp' is in a subdirectory,
      xsec/Makefile.am:370: but option 'subdir-objects' is disabled
      [...]
      

      A possible fix is adding the option to AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE in configure.ac, like

      AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE([subdir-objects])
