If Automake 1.6 relies on Autoconf 2.50+, maybe there is no
need to play with CDPATH at all.  

configure executes the following (among other similar things) on

$as_unset CDPATH || test "${CDPATH+set}" != set || { CDPATH=:; export CDPATH; }

So I'd suggest to cleanup Automake from all these ugly CDPATH assignments.
