If there are no plans to change to autotools (or better, modern build system *cough* SCons *cough*) then consider this a feature request for "make install" behavior for the reasons listed in my previous email.

This would be my vote (add make install to existing build system) as well.  I think this is the biggest 'pro' you listed that we are currently lacking... I don't know what make dist is and don't we already pretty much do the right thing for shared libraries on linux/mac os?
