hmm, had a go at 'install -C' and while most files were untouched(just checked 
a few), it
did take about the same time to run 'install -C' as an normal install.

One thing that would go a long way is if one could do something like this:
  make install eq_ss
and have make just install what is in the eq_ss directory
