I know (from the Rute user's tutorial :-). But I don't want to
redirect stderr. (Besides that, is the above output stderr? It's only
telling me what it does, and it succeeds in doing that, so that
shouldn't be stderr!?)

`make install' prints a lot on the screen, it makes my head swim. It
prints all these `for foo in ...' lines, then the command lines it
uses to copy the files -- it looks as if I turned debug-mode on.
That's just how it feels, IMO. I guess there are reasons for not using

   /usr/bin/install -c -m  644 --verbose ...

and just show the output of that on the screen (probably `--verbose'
isn't available everywhere?). Anyway, that's why I wanted to redirect
stdout _only_ in order to see if there is any stderr. And as the above
output doesn't look like stderr to me, I thought there is some kind of
`echo off' missing in the makefile.
