Why 2.62 and not 2.69?

Based on what you said above, you successfully installed into
/usr/local/bin, but your shell is probably still set to either have
/usr/bin first in $PATH, or else your shell has hashed the previous
location of automake from when it did a path search before you did your
install, and needs to be taught to do a full path search instead of
relying on its hashed location.  The easiest way to clear the shell
hash, assuming you use a POSIX-y shell like bash, is to execute the command:

There's no need to send an rtf duplicate copy of your email.  Plain text
alone is preferred on technical lists.
