    Description

      With the current autotools setup, out-of-tree builds are not possible due to the global include directory not being part of VPATH, not being populated in the build tree and being passed as a hardcoded relative path.

      I'm not sure if this was ever considered to be used, but it would definitely be nice, as I tend to build from source using different configurations (for supporting various database backends, different component configurations and similar).

      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Bootstrap the autotools (./bootstrap.sh)
      2. Create a build directory (mkdir build-opt && cd $_)
      3. Configure the build system to your liking (../configure CFLAGS='-O3 -fomit-frame-pointer' --enable-agent)
      4. Build the project (gmake)

      Result:
      The build system assumes that it's configured in the root of the source tree, so the include path to the global header directory passed to -I is incorrect. The above example creates a build tree as a subdirectory of the source tree, but the issue is more notable when having the build tree elsewhere, say, under /tmp. I've attached a log as an example.

      Expected:
      I would expect out-of-tree builds to just work.
