I am puzzled. Why there are many automake to go? Which ver# shall I take?

www bandwidthd # emerge --pretend --verbose -u automake

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Some time ago, the autoconf / automake / libtool ebuilds were modified. Many users now complain that portage wants to install all available versions, but as Mike Frysinger explains: "The old ebuilds (autoconf-2.59-r5 / automake-1.8.5-r1 / libtool-1.5.2-r7) actually downloaded and installed multiple versions of each package. You thought you had just one autoconf, but boy oh boy were you wrong !"

* autotools confusion

It's from February 8th. Here's the link:
