automake doens't need a make step. The configure script creates the
automake and aclocal perl scripts. A make does nothing:

chaser:/usr/src/builds/automake-1.4$ make
Making all in .
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr2/src/builds/automake-1.4'
make[1]: Nothing to be done for `all-am'.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr2/src/builds/automake-1.4'
Making all in m4
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr2/src/builds/automake-1.4/m4'
make[1]: Nothing to be done for `all'.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr2/src/builds/automake-1.4/m4'
Making all in tests
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr2/src/builds/automake-1.4/tests'
make[1]: Nothing to be done for `all'.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr2/src/builds/automake-1.4/tests'
chaser:/usr/src/builds/automake-1.4$

No it's not, it's mine. Linux86 will be put back again.

mv isn't necessary anymore as far as I have seen (unless I passed a
wrong configure flag but files that should be in /bin and /sbin are
there already)

That indeed is easier than editing the Makefile. Never thought about
using sed. Thanks.
