I was hoping to create a src tree which would build automake1.9 and autoconf2.61
and install them in a central place. Writing a for this is quite 
hard if
not impossible. The automake expects and depends on that the directory where
its untarred should be called automake-1.9, which makes writing the
dependent on the version and would some unrequired maintenance of

Moreover automake1.9 is dependent on autoconf2.58+ to be present in the path 
I cant have them in the same sandbox at all !!! I need to install autoconf 
first and then try configuring automake. That doesnt seem right.

Any suggestions, on whether/how this can be managed ?
