Well, if you
  ./configure --program-prefix=g

then `make install' will copy a script `foo' to `$bindir/gfoo'.
That doesn't work well with `install foo bar baz $bindir'.
Renaming files in the build tree is fragile (will cause make rebuilding
rules to trigger, could even break packages with a naming clash).

I don't see a nice solution yet.
