I believe it was not intentional, but simply that nobody really
cares.  The `*-1.6' binaries are here to help the people doing
the transition to Automake 1.7 when it come out; not to help
people stick to Automake 1.6 ad vitam aeternam.  So it doesn't
make much sense documenting them.

What about renaming the info files from the old versions?
