defining xxx_PROGRAMS conditionally?

I know this has been discussed before, and I don't remember seeing a good
solution.  Perhaps this has changed with automake-1.7.7...

I have a situation where I am using automake conditionals to control the
installation directory of _PROGRAMS.

In certain configurations I want them to be bin_PROGRAMS, and in others I
want them to be bootbin_PROGRAMS.

Sometimes automake-1.7.7 does not like this, and complains:

 utils/ automake does not support bin_PROGRAMS being defined 
 utils/ automake does not support bootbin_PROGRAMS being defined 

I would rather not hack around this by always installing in bin_PROGRAMS and
using the automake conditionals to override using:

 if FOO

(assuming that would work...)_

What other solutions are there?

One other strange thing - there are some directories where this same
situation does not cause a complaint from automake, and so far I haven't
been able to see the difference inhow I have specified things.
