Another libtool problem

I always knew that "make install" with libtool needs write access in the
build tree (relinking), but only today I encoutered a situation where this
was a serious problem.

As usual I did "make all" as non-root, followed by "make install" as root,
but this time on an nfs-mounted filesystem. Due to root-squashing this

I think there is a general rule that if at all possible
(1) "make" should not modify the source tree and
(2) "make install" should not modify the build tree
because (1) the source tree might be read-only and (2) the build tree might
be read-only for root.

Is there a way to address that problem? (-no-fast-install?)
