Hello Alexandre!

> Which version of Perl is this?

v5.6.0, and you guessed right: everything passes/works happily on a
perl v5.8.0rc2 machine. Copying the automake directory over from it to the
v5.6.0 gets the error. In fact, simply ./automake gives the above error (no
need for the "bootstrap" part)

Just trying to work out how such variables are meant to be used.. all the
other am__* variables seem to appear in a "define_variable","subst", or
"variable_value", just not am__installdirs.
