With this patch, I confirm that my install (from an out-of-source-tree build) now completes without throwing an error.  It now installs mod_dontdothat during "make install-mods-shared" instead of during "make install-tools".

However, I don't know if that's what we really want.  If something is under "tools", that suggests to me that it should be installed by "install-tools" and perhaps not by "install-mods-shared"... but we have to do something.  I have no particular objection, as I'm sure package managers can work around it whatever way they wish.

What do others think?
