If a package directly invokes "automake", that's a bug. It should instead call automake-1.8, automake-1.4, whatever is known to work. The automake binaries are versioned for a reason - so installing a new version doesn't break builds. Patches to move to a new version should be upstream, since they are more likely to be familiar with their build system and the effects of new automake versions on their packages.
