It is *not* the case that you have to compile into static libraries, but
the default assumption is that each object file goes into the same
directory as the source file.

Below is how you'd need to rewrite the OMakefile for your project.

Offtopic - you may also want to use -Werror, so that it's easier to use
OMake's -p/-k/-P options without having to scroll back to find all the

INCLUDES is only for the header files. You need

INCLUDES += $(dir headers)

(Note1 - the order of the previous two lines is important. The way I
wrote it, the src dir would get the updated INCLUDES; if you do not want
that, reorder the two.)

(Note2 - the above would expect an src/OMakefile file, even though an
empty one would do. You could write something like

   return # A no-op body

to "inline" the ./src/OMakefile into the ./OMakefile)

Should be src/file1.

Hope this helps.
