When I install Emacs normally, I get subdirs.el but not subdirs.elc.
IMVHO it makes no sense to byte-compile this file: it is too short.
One solution would be to byte-compile the file anyway, or perhaps to
copy the subdirs.el file into every directory in load-path, even if
that directory only contains *.elc files.
