That depends on what you're trying to do; but probably it will 
involve subclassing the install command rather than simply invoking it.

What are you trying to customize, anyway?  There really aren't many 
user-serviceable parts inside; you'd probably be better off 
customizing subcommands (like install_lib or some of the build_* commands).
