#54 Small fix for Makefile


Not every platform has GNU install as system default.
Not on Digital Unix, for example. However, GNU install
is needed for a proper installation and the command
'install' is hardcoded into the Makefile in several

This patch add a Makefile definition $(INSTALL) at top
of file so the path can at least be configured as it
happens with $(CP).

It would be good to note in the installation document
that you need a set of GNU tools (install, cp, make) to
run the installation.

    Where can I get these GNU tools (install and cp)? I found
    gmake but am looking all over the place for install and cp
    and cannot find it anywhere. I am having a terrible time
    trying to install this on Solaris 8!
