Or without launching a shell:
install:        mod2 := $(patsubst LINUX/%,%,$(wildcard LINUX/*))

$(wildcard LINUX/*) will list all files in the LINUX directory,
including the LINUX/ part of the path.

$(patsubst LINUX/%,% ...) replaces all occurences of LINUX/ with nothing.
The second '%' tell make to take what it matched with '%' in the first
part and use that string.
So with LINUX/abc.c using "LINUX/%", then % will match abc.c (the stem)
and that is the string used.

But them we start to use the advanced make features, and in this
case the basics are missing.
