I'm doing "make install" for several builds of emacs-23.0.96, and I
just noticed this output (with the GNU default of prefix=/usr/local):

chmod -R a+r \
        /usr/local/share/emacs/23.0.96 \
        /usr/local/share/emacs/site-lisp \
        /usr/local/share/emacs/23.0.96/etc \
        /usr/local/share/emacs/23.0.96/lisp \

While it is appropriate to run chmod at installation time for a
package's own files, it is HIGHLY INAPPROPRIATE to run chmod on
directories and files belonging to other packages.  The directories


need to be removed from the install command chmod processing.

Their contents, and file permissions, are not the business of
emacs-x.y.z release installations.  A given site, including ours, may
have local reasons for nondefault permissions in those directories.

I believe this is fixed now.

  * Makefile.in (install-arch-indep): Don't recursively change perms of
  site-lisp and infodir. There may be non-Emacs files in here, and the
  files supplied by Emacs are all handled explicitly already.  (Bug#3800)
