The numbered auto* ports install into separate directories, so there is
nothing to be done.  Install the automake19 port and start running
"automake19" instead of "automake14".  Both ports will live happily
side by side.  If you are talking about updating a port to use a
different version of automake, just edit the WANT_AUTOMAKE_VER line in
the Makefile.
