INSTALL variable in Makefile

Why is INSTALL not present in the FLAGS_TO_PASS?

I'm using CVS 1.11 under SunOS 5.8.  Here INSTALL must be
/usr/ucb/install; there's no /usr/local/bin/install.  (AR needs to be
adapted too.)  In the main Makefile, the flag INSTALL is not passed
on, unlike, e.g., AR, CC, CFLAGS, etc.  Adding the line
to the FLAGS_TO_PASS makes the installation go smoothly.

Is there a deeper rationale for not passing INSTALL?
