Kludgy, if that word exists :)  Something similar to this was
done before we decided to use install-sh unconditionally, and
the selection of install-sh versus install led to very ugly
Makefile constructs involving submake evaluations to preserve
relative filenames and the like.

I'd really prefer the MAYBE_STRIP solution suggested in a
separate mail.
