I would prefer /usr/autoconf-2.13 and /usr/autoconf-2.52 for the
directory names.  Then when autoconf-2.53 is released I can test it
without losing autoconf-2.52.  Perhaps you could allow autoconfiguration
to set the paths? :)

For the values of path_stable and path_devel it would be cool if you
checked for the presence of AUTOPATH_STABLE and AUTOPATH_DEVEL so that
the directories could be changed on the fly.  They could even be set in
the /etc/profile file for convenience.
