But at least the rules are correct, so that if you modify a source
file it will be recompiled and added to the archive correctly.

This used to be done more or less as you suggest, but there were
problems with the libcruft library, which has source files split
across several subdirectories.

If you can suggest a rule that will work correctly for all of Octave's
libraries using the current directory structure, please submit a patch.
