Re: automake parallel install

Just a thought ...

Keep different versions of the autotools
(autoconf, automake, and libtool) in
different autoconf directories
(for eg, autoconf-2.52, automake-1.5b,
and libtool-1.4d could be installed
in /local/autoconf-2.52).

In addition, each package has
its own bootstrap script that invokes
aclocal, etc.

Further, have the bootstrap script
check if the right automake, eg,
is being picked up.  If not it would
set the PATH variable to point
to the proper /local/autoconf directory.
