That means that
is passed to "make install" to override the Makefile variable "INSTALL".
The syntax is
   INSTALL_OVERRIDE_VARS = <list of variables>
   INSTALL_OVERRIDE_VAR_<var1> = <value1>
The reason for using INSTALL_OVERRIDE_VAR_* instead of just the
variable is that the overridden variables are often very common
and may break the build at other places.

I choose /usr/ucb/install because it worked :-) ginstall may have
worked also.

Best regards
