HOWTO install multiple Autoconfs

It sometimes happens that you need to have different versions of
Autoconf installed (because your distro doesn't package the one you need
most by default). This is my recipe for installing multiple parallel

$ export VERSION=2.63
$ wget http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/autoconf/autoconf-$VERSION.tar.bz2
$ tar xjvf autoconf-$VERSION.tar.bz2
$ cd autoconf-$VERSION/
$ ./configure --program-suffix=-$VERSION
$ sudo make install pkgdatadir="\$(datadir)/autoconf-$VERSION" pkglibdir="\$(datadir)/autoconf-$VERSION"
