v-b-s installs autoconf 2.52 and automake 1.4 so it doesn't matter which
version of automake is installed system-wide (or even if it's installed
at all). Mike is probably not using scripts to build from CVS. 

btw, Debian handles different versions of automake and autoconf the
exact same way as Red Hat.
