I don't think we have a way to specify scripts/files to install as part of
an existing target. That would imply a gen-make change.

Thinking about it, though, I'm inclined to suggest a bit more radical change
to gen-make/build-outputs. Right now, build-outputs contains things like
'install-fs-bin' and 'install-bin'. Ideally, svn-config would be installed
as part of install-bin. It would be nice to simply list that in Makefile.in
rather than teaching gen-make/build.conf how to do it ("nicer" in the sense
of "less work"). But we can't just "add" stuff to install-bin.

Then we get around to the point that it might be nice to have some
"standard" installation targets. install-docs, install-includes, etc. One of
those would be install-bin. In turn, that might mean we change the
build-outputs targets to internal-install-bin or somesuch (maybe x- or int-
or something). Then we could have install-bin use the right targets.


Then again, it might simply be easier to define a [bin-scripts] section at
the top and have those get installed as part of install-bin.
