	Beginning with automake-1.6 the automake API calls for automatic
	rebuild rules in Makefiles generated by automake to invoke both
	aclocal and automake with the API version attached to the program
	name.  Hence, if aclocal needs to be invoked from the Makefile it
	is invoked as aclocal-1.6 (and similarly for automake).  A proper
	installation of automake needs hard links for aclocal-1.6 and
	automake-1.6 to be included in /usr/pkg/bin otherwise each
	developer needs to add these in order to use automake.

	I understand that versioned binaries don't fit in well with the
	pkgsrc model yet, but it would be nice if these links were at least
	included for the installed version even if they won't stay around
	after an upgrade.
	Add the two links mentioned in the description above.
