Just typing 'install' will run /usr/bin/install. This is
a program that some makefiles use to copy files into
their final resting places.
If a packages has a script called install, chances are it
is just a replacement for /usr/bin/install for platforms
that have a broken (or missing) /usr/bin/install.
OTOH, there are some (mostly commercial) packages that install
with an install.sh script. You'll need to type
to run this, as the current directory is not (normally) on
the PATH in Unix (unlike DOS).
