Unless something is very wrong, "make install" now will not install
broken packages.  "make package" has always failed if the list of
installed files is incorrect, so you can still go through your same
procedure when updating packages.  I don't see the issue.

Joerg's change only makes "make install" DTRT when using destdir and
leaves all previous behavior unaltered.  The previous situation was
non-intuitive (to the point of being considered broken by some).
Joerg, thanks for the change!
