Hmm.  Even what you suggest isn't easy to do, at least not portably.

Here's a fairly expensive way to list those files; it depends on DESTDIR
support, and assumes you do not have a file or directory ./DEST:

  make install DESTDIR=`pwd`/DEST
  echo "Installed files:"
  (cd DEST && find .)
  rm -rf DEST

Alternatively, you can override prefix=... at install time, but libtool
might complain a bit.

Hope that helps.
