   make install is make install.  It is not a package manager.  Get
   used to it.

No, I won't get used to it since the behaviour of `make install' is
wrong.  That _I_ use it as a package manager is totaly irrelevant to
the dicussion.  Clobbering files that *will and should* get modifed by
users is wrong.

   If you would like a configure switch or makefile variable to enable
   some nonstandard behavior for your convenience while hacking, that
   is fine by me.

It isn't about me or my hacks, you said yourself I could get a branch
for that.  It is about what _users_ expect, and this is what users
expect, you have Neal, Harley and Marco back over there who think this
is a good.

   But don't get any fantasies about what the proper behavior is.

Please Roland, you are just being silly now.
