Problem is, when you install like that, libtool cannot run $finish_cmds,
as that typically (e.g., 'ldconfig -n' on GNU/Linux) requires libraries
to show up at their final location, not in a temporary staging
directory.  So once the libraries are in their final location, you can
either wait for a reboot (or ldconfig) to happen by some system
mechanism, or you can run the --finish command line to achieve the same

You can safely ignore the warning during distcheck, as that just
exercises a DESTDIR install.
