Yes, this is "correct".  Essentially the set-up builds everything into
$(SRC)/dist.$(ARCH).  "make install" basically copies this to the final
destination.  Given the way gmake5 and the sources are set-up, this was 
a work around to allow a full build to be done (as any old user) and
then the install to be done as a priveledged user.

It probably would be better if each Gmakefile built its final modules in
OBJ.$(ARCH) and then there was an "install" target, but I don't think
the gmake5 setup will work this way (not sure).  That's probably how
grass5.1 will work.
