Why is the configure.in file set to always use "install-sh"?
There is a comment that says:

quite well on my machine. The only commments I can find in the

Simplify value of INSTALL (always 'cp').
Is there any reason why the autoconf macro AC_PROG_INSTALL is not used? The
documentation seems to indicate that is does what we want.
