I call this a feature. There have been several times I've made a change
to the library where the library compiles but the examples don't. If
the examples don't build by default, I'll catch these problems later in
Why is this a problem? Is it just the extra time it takes?

That will do what you want. But it won't do what _I_ want. :)

All automake lets you do is append local rules to the end of the 'all'
target processing, with an all-local rule. You can't completely take
over the target.
