Making a stink because you don't want to type --disable-install-runsystem
in configure commands when doing your own hacking is what's silly.

The vanilla use of make install is to populate an empty $(prefix) directory
with a pristine, complete, vanilla system.  If you want to use make install
for overwriting existing stuff selectively, you should expect to have to
use some configure or make tweak to get that to happen.
