Summary: 'make install' after 'make' modifies source tree

Initial Comment:
With mailman 2.1.2 './configure' and 'make' run fine,
but then I switched to the mailman user account to do
'make install'.

It tried to unpack misc/email-2.5.1.tar.gz,
misc/JapaneseCodecs-1.4.9.tar.gz and
misc/KoreanCodecs-2.0.5.tar.gz, but this failed because
the mailman user doesn't have write permission in the
source tree.

I think 'make install' shouldn't need to write to the
source tree after 'make' was done. Either this has to
be done during 'make' or to the /tmp directory.
