Hi Simon,

I've done a little bit of experimenting and figured out that it's a bug in how
we're using @INSTALL@ at best, but that AC_PROG_INSTALL is setting it to the
relative path for install-sh if an install binary isn't found - as it is on the
systems that the rest of us are using :)

I'm not quite sure how I'm going to fix that here other than rewriting all of
the make install aspects to figure out that install doesn't have srcdir
prepended or computing every install from the top level.  Not something I'm
honestly willing to do.

At any rate there are a couple of options:

a) install a bsd-compatible install program someplace that configure will
notice (somewhere in your path)
b) set INSTALL at configure time:  INSTALL=$srcdir/autoconf/install-sh

I'm sorry that there aren't better options for you at the moment.
