System: NetBSD dhcppc2 1.6 NetBSD 1.6 (GENERIC_LAPTOP) #0: Sun Sep 8 19:55:58 UTC 2002 email@example.com:/autobuild/i386/OBJ/autobuild/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/GENERIC_LAPTOP i386
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.
