This is the implicit make rule again.  Just as before with your header
files.  Make has an implicit rule to make an executable out of a c++
source file as well as one to make a ".o" object file.

The reason you were not having this problem before you switched to
automake was because your previous makefile did not have your header
files or this setup file as any of the dependancies.

Other people don't have this problem by avoiding this kind of file naming.
