There is no need to support multiple autotools versions, just specify  
in the README which ones are required.  I believe that you can  
(should?) also specific the required version in the configure.in and  

I have three different versions installed, Fink makes that easy.  Its  
also easy on Debian to install multiple versions.

Man has survived hitherto because he was too ignorant to know how to  
realize his wishes.
Now that he can realize them, he must either change them, or perish.
