This is a general issue in the build.  I run into it because I do cvs
checkouts with CVSREAD=t, resulting in 444 sourcefiles, and hence 444
objfiles that copied.

Basically, I think defining CP to use -f globally is probably
reasonable, but I'm not sure if there will be fallout.

It also seems like $INSTALL should be used, but this is for the
source->obj step, not obj->destdir.
