This is not an automake problem, the problem is triggered by the
following snippet in Makefile.am

declare_wslua.h: make-reg.pl $(wslua_modules) taps_wslua.c
        $(PERL) $(srcdir)/make-reg.pl $(wslua_modules);

and is (in the end) caused by make-reg.pl which wasn't designed to
work with out of tree builds.

works. Some say that should read Microsoft instead of technology.
