Don't worry about the headaches, the more portable we get this the

The only way I know for you to be getting the "make install: is already
up to date" message is that make is finding a file called install
somewhere. Don't worry about it, there are ways around this (I hope).

Try putting the following in your Makefile:

replace the line


with the lines


install: FORCE

and let me know if "make install" works.
