Under Solaris "pkgsrc" uses the "install-sh" package to provide the
"install" command (instead of using "/usr/ucb/install" for whatever
reasons). This command does however still insists on the use of
the "-c" option to prevent the deletion of the source file. This
behaviour was broken to start with and has been fixed in
NetBSD's install(1) a while ago. "install-sh" should be changed
in a similar way.

Build any package that use "install" without the "-c" option
e.g. "ffmpeg" before yesterday's fixes.

None provided.
