As far `install: install-man3' is concerned, you could replace
it with

  install-data-local: install-man3

(When an install-data-local rule exists it is automatically
added to the prerequisites of install-data-am, which itself is
required by ... etc., etc., ... required by `install'.)

This doesn't answer your general question, however.
