the historical (non-standardized) install command is really
inappropriate for installing binaries/libraries on a system that
utilizes memory-mapped executable files. rather than replacing an
existing file atomically, it overwrites the existing file. this can
cause running programs to see a partially-modified version of the
file, resulting in unpredictable behavior, or SIGBUS. a MAP_COPY mode
for mmap would get around this problem, but Linux lacks MAP_COPY.
the shell script added with this commit works around the problem by
writing temporary files and moving them into place. unlike the
historical install utility, it also support a -l option for installing
a symbolic link atomically, via the same method.
