yes that sounds reasonable for now.

no this assumption is wrong. i am author of one of the bigger gnome 2
buildscripts around we are able to paralell install vanilla automake
1.4-p6 and automake 1.6.x within the same prefix. please get automake
1.4-p6 from and investigate into the readme and changelog
there. please also consult this context.

e.g. the bindir looks like this

/usr/bin/automake      <-- either 1.4-p6 or 1.6.x depends which got
                           installed last or manually linked to one of
/usr/bin/aclocal       <-- either 1.4-p6 or 1.6.x depends which got
                           installed last or manually linked to one of


now this is nice for the automake itself. but if it uses e.g. the 1.4
binary then it spits out error. so it makes sense in the file
to explicitely use the correct version.

yes thats why 1.4-p6 was made. some modules of gnome cvs head are beeing
ported to 1.6.x already and gnome-2-0 branches still point to 1.4 (and
will be ported soon too). well if you use just one automake then this
doesn't make much sense.. but recently i got trapped myself by this e.g.
i read in the mc changelog that you need at least automake 1.5. i
installed automake 1.5 specially for mc and mc refused to generate the
makefiles because it depends on 1.6 already. so it may be interesting
and for sure a good idea to rename it to automake-1.6 at least from a
vanilla point of view.
