Scratchbox will use host version of binaries if they exist. This
is mainly for performance reasons, so they don't need to be run
over ARM emulation or across network on real device, but there
are sometimes also other reasons.  If you want to override

Scratchbox actually offers you several versions of automake
(1.4, 1.7, 1.8), you just need to use SBOX_DEFAULT_AUTOMAKE
environment variable to select which one you want to use.
