umask is considered a 'local' setting; there are many reasons to set it
to various values depending on your local circumstances. It would not
make sense to set it in the makefile of a software package; someone else
would have a problem with that overriding their umask settings and
wondering why this was done.

If you install software as one user and run it as another, then you
should take ownership of understanding that you must temporarily set the
first user's umask to a sensible value (022?) when you do the install step.
