Is there a simple way to have automake install the same program under
multiple different names?

(the point being that the program behaves differently depending on the
name used to invoke it; bash and openssl are two examples of programs
which behave in this manner, but neither uses automake)

I would install the program as one name and then create symbolic links within $(bindir) to the other names. You can do this with an install-hook explained here
