Building outside source tree directory fails

$ tar xfj hello-2.1.1.tar.gz
$ mkdir hellobuild
$ cd hellobuild
$ ../hello-2.1.1/configure
$ make
Making all in man
perl help2man --name="Friendly Greeting Program" ../src/hello >hello.1
Can't open perl script "help2man": No such file or directory
make[2]: *** [hello.1] Error 2
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 2

The directive (in man/Makefile.am) obviously cannot work this way
hello.1: ../src/hello $(HELP2MAN)
   $(PERL) $(HELP2MAN) --name="Friendly Greeting Program" ../src/hello >$@

because  "perl help2man" acutally becomes "perl /xyz/hellobuild/man/help2man".
