Why would you want to make the includes without installing thm somewhere (to
$DESTDIR?) All the builds rely on installed includes, not in-tree includes.
Building the includes in the tree doesn't buy you very much.
I proposed not too long ago a patch to install(1) to allow silent failure of
chown; this would allow a non-root user to install includes to a
$DESTDIR.... would such a thing help this situation?
