PATCH: more upgrade friendly.

Hello again,

In my constant recompiles of 2.9p1 and 2.9p2, I've noticed that
upgrading a current installation with a test compile leads to tons
of files being updated even when they don't need to be.

The attached patch for splits the install-files target
into a bunch of serparate targets: install-dirs, install-prog,
install-man, install-conf, which are then all called in their prior
order from install target.

This allows a person who is testing new binaries several times an
hour to only update the necessary files, say...
	make install-bin
rather than the more broad
	make install-files

Not a big issue.  Not really a problem.  Just finer-grained install
