I'm all but an expert on this, but nobody else seems around, so I'll
just give it a try:  AFAIK there is no easy support for this in current
Automake, but you could overwrite `mandir' on a basis.
Like this:
   mandir = $(datadir)/man/es
   man1_MANS = ...

Or, if you want different languages from one, you could look
at the rules Automake generates and write similar, extended ones
yourself.  (Or provide a patch for Automake, I guess.)

Hope that helps a bit.
