Committed, thanks.

I'm actually interested in the methodology of your first patch, which
split up the install rules into one rule for each file. Obviously we
can't use the timestamps of what's in the installed area, but having a
separate install rule for each library would mean that (a) we could get
rid of the five separate library types in favor of a single "lib" type,
and (b) we could stop relying on "make" evaluating dependencies in
order, so that our Makefile would have a hope of operating in parallel
mode. (Not that one would ever really want to use "make -j install",
but it's still more elegant not to rely on dependency order.)

Since we can't use files from the install area as rule targets, the
separate rule for each file would have to be a fake target name like
