I guess you meant /usr/share/aclocal-1.6/ and /usr/share/aclocal/.
aclocal uses *both* directories.
Artur> Many software packages install m4 macros into
Third party packages should install their macros in $(datadir)/aclocal/.
See also `aclocal --print-ac-dir`.

They will be used. $(datadir)/aclocal-1.6/ is a private directory,
don't put anything in it.
In short: don't change the place exising packages install their macros.
