I am not saying that this is a problem, but I did not know that building
from a subdir is unsupported, and I think this is not documented.

I apologise if I am missing some documentation, but I think that this
silent failure without any notice is is the problem: I was going to
commit a broken patch because of this (I entered libavformat, I modified
rtp.h and some .c files, I did "make" and I saw no failure, and I was
going to do "svn commit"... But I forgot to modify a .c file, and my
patch was broken. Fortunately, for some reason I ran "make" from the
main directory and I noticed the problem).
