I use the environmental modules to provide software that isn't provided by the base OS.  http://modules.sf.net will be a good start.  You can also look at building your own versions regardless if you choose to implement modules to wrap on top

| versions of autoconf and automake. How can this be handled? What will
| happen on later updates? Currently I have
| 
| autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.59
| 
| automake (GNU automake) 1.9.6
| 
| I need
| 
| autoconf 2.69-1 and automake 1.11.6.
