overriding variables?

In the CVS head I'm getting automake warnings if I override the value
of a variable. 

I have a which is included at the top of all my
files which sets the value for "PERLINST" to a sensible default, but
occasionally one of the directories needs a different value, so I
override it.

PERLINST = perl/foo

include $(top_srcdir)/config/
PERLINST = perl/var

This results in messages like: PERLINST multiply defined in condition TRUE

  PERLINST (User, where = 19) =
    TRUE => perlidl/$(PACKAGE)/$(subdir)

This used to work in 1.4. Assuming this is not a bug in CVS automake,
whats the official way to override common values nowadays?

Thanks in advance,
