 Yes, I now agree I was overstating it.  I looked at fedora - they
install with:

make install_root=$RPM_BUILD_ROOT install

and using install_root causes test-installation.pl to be ignored.
I guess it's just a hangover from the days when updating glibc was
shrouded in mystery.

 Unless something comes back from bug 14476, I'm happy to do without
