Yeah, I think the 'install' targets in either the old src/configure.in  
build system or the new autogen.sh/configure.ac build system have not  
been dealt with.

I'm pretty happy with the new build system, but it depends on libtool,  
which is kind of a pain.  Ideally, it would not use libtool and would  
be setup to work with MinGW, then I think we'd' have a winner for a  
new build system.  If you want to work on that, please dive right it. :)

If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of  
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an  
idea, which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps  
it to himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into  
the possession of everyone, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself  
of it.            - Thomas Jefferson
