I don't think this is possible , given that install-sh comes with almost
every package that uses GNU Autoconf (we'd have to patch every package...).

Yes, we could set them in MAKE_ENV, using the values from defs.*.mk.
 In fact, it could be easier (and maybe cleaner) if we stored our own
install-sh script in mk/gnu-config and automatically overrided the one
included in packages, just like we do with libtool...
