I previously modified pkgsrc/lang/python/ to use ${INSTALL}
instead of install to keep pkglint quiet and had to revert it when it
was pointed out that install in that context was a parameter to, not the install command.  Since the warning pops up in every
Python package that includes that file I wanted to find a solution. 
Turns out that it was really simple.  I just put the word into quotes in
the command line and now everything is quiet.

Anyone have a problem if I make that change?  I was wondering if a
comment was needed in the file or was the CVS log enough.
