how to override AUTOMAKE = ... in Makefile

I work on GStreamer and it's build infrastructure.

GStreamer requires automake 1.5 because we use per-target flags.

Now that Red Hat 7.3 has an automake-1.5 binary and a regular automake 
binary, I provided options to to specify a different automake 
binary.  It does this perfectly, uses it for autogenning, and also 
automatically picks up aclocal-1.5

Now, what happens is that when you touch a in a directory, it 
will regenerate the Makefile because of the 

AUTOMAKE = (path)/missing --run automake

Only of course it then uses automake 1.4

I would like to know what is the best way to override this so that it also 
uses automake-1.5.

Any suggestions ?
