	Redhat 7.3 just creates symlinks pointing on automake-1.4,
autoconf-2.13, ... and such. Ximian is even more evil, throws unversioned
scripts into /usr/bin. But hey: I'm quite sure that the Debian and the
Mandrake scripts are gpled... Well, and we have employees of Redhat and
Ximian on this list - so this disaster should be easy to fix... ;-)
