Oh I see now.  ar doesn't store pathname.

If you can require a new enough binutils (2.19 or newer), you could
use "thin archives", which don't have this limitation, and have
some more advantages.  See the -T option to ar (ar rcsT bla.a ...)

Another option is to have an archive file per directory.
