Purely as a workaround I would suggest overriding the install program
with the newly compiled install program.  That way the options will
work.  Something like this.  This is untested but I believe it would

  make INSTALL=./src/install install

Or use the autoconf version which is shipped with most configure based

  make INSTALL=./install-sh install
