Quoting Paul Eggert <address@hidden>:

I like the basic idea for this.

The patches would have to be contributed by someone who's signed
the appropriate papers, since it's a nontrivial change.

As soon as this thread started, I talked with Akim Demaille about this issue and
he said he already submitted a patch for this (quite a while ago). I'm working
with him on several projects and we're using his patched version of install-sh
to avoid unecessary builds due to make install overwritting files that didn't

In case this patch was lost at some point, I can ask him to submit it again (I
don't think he reads these mailing lists anymore).
