Hi Akim,

    I suppose, but I'm not sure, that this is in order to let some
    tools postprocess the logs of a "make install".

I've never heard of any, but what do I know.  I rather suspect it's
because of different install programs behaved differently, back in the

    install-sh already does the right thing, 

Right, but do our configure scripts typically check if
install FILE1 FILE2 ... DIR
works, as one criteria for whether install-sh is used?

If so, I can't see any reason to avoid the multiple-file invocation.
If not, it seems like that needs to be done first?
