I don't think you're doing it the Debian way ;-).  The Debian way
is "update-alternatives --config <name of alternative as given by
"ls /etc/alternatives">" which in your case might translate into
"update-alternatives --config automake".

As for my setup I have the "automake1.4" and "autoconf2.13"
packages uninstalled.  Instead I have "automake1.7" and
"autoconf".  Your problem might be because in addition to
"automake1.6" you also have "automake1.4" (or simply "automake")
