What's your point? Greg kludged share/sendmail/Makefile to
work around Ruslan's broken implementation in xinstall.

Either fix xinstall so options that conflict with -d
are ignored (I've already posted a patch, twice), or 
fix the documentation of make.conf (I've already posted
a patch for this, too) and fix the example make.conf
under share/example/etc and add an entry to UPDATING.

There is also an open problem report bin/37795, which
Ruslan knew existed, and he has not closed it (his kludge
invalidates the PR).

At one time, setting INSTALL to "install -C" in make.conf
could be a BIG time saver during a "make world"?  One
can no longer set INSTALL.
