As I said, you need a 2nd eval. Unless you mean that $top_builddir
should be expanded *everywhere* immediately. But IMO it is much
nicer to preserve the special property for $top_builddir
of being the "top_builddir" as long as possible.

Here too it helps to know '$top_builddir' (and not just have the
expanded path)...
