Subject: should install-sh automatically create destination directories?

When installing www/analog I run into

/usr/local/pkg/bin/install-sh -c -o root -g sys -m 444
install: destination is not a directory
*** Error code 1

The reason is that /usr/local/pkg/lib/analog does not exist. Should
/usr/local/pkg/bin/install-sh automatically create the missing
directories in such a case? Or should the analog install routine
explicitly do so?

BTW, my install-sh is
# $NetBSD: install-sh,v 1.4 2003/12/05 16:52:25 erh
