automake - missing link

Ok, this is not OT (sorry for not reading the earlier 'this is OT, send to
blfs-dev/support' posts).

When installing automake in chapter 6, I suggest also to add the following
to the instructions at the end of the page:

  ln -s aclocal-1.7 /usr/share/aclocal

if not earlier, as for example gettext installs some m4-files to
/usr/share/aclocal, so perhaps there should be a 
  mv /usr/share/aclocal/* /usr/share/aclocal-1.7 && rmdir /usr/share/aclocal
before the link above.

I don't think it makes sense to have two directories aclocal and aclocal-1.7
