Doesn't `configure --program-suffix=-1.5' work?  (To rename the
binaries, I mean.  The directories still need to be renamed and
I hardly see why Automake could not install itself in

Would it be the job of `make install' to handle this symlink?
If yes, how should it be updated?  Say I install
Automake-1.5 *after* Automake-1.6, should automake point to
automake-1.5 or automake-1.6?

It seems you'd better move that `push' after the `while' loop,
otherwise the files in @datadir@/aclocal will override the user
files (the converse is expected).
