What is wrong with 'make install || make replace' or, if you prefer, 'make replace || make install' ?

Wow, that's terrible.

I have not quite understood what "make update" does (the absence of

dependent packages of the one you are updating. In my case, it managed
to delete all of XFCE and Firefox while I was using it.
