You can just list all needed files in EXTRA_DIST (or the appropriate
automake variable) and avoid using SUBDIRS, e.g.
EXTRA_DIST = upstream-file1 upstream-file2 debian/control \
debian/changelog debian/source/format ...
It's a separate question why would you need to distribute the upstream
tarball with a debian dir included...
(BTW, Automake is smart enough to automatically distribute ChangeLog,
README, THANKS, etc. and defining VPATH/srcdir is not necessary since
quite some time.)
