On Solaris the path is significant for what standard (see
http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/819-2252/standards-5?a=view) is used.
When I build ffmpeg I set PATH to
so I am sure that I use the "POSIX.1-2001, SUSv3" standard.
Putting /usr/ucb in front of the path might cause side-effects since other
versions of the commands might be picked up from the /usr/ucb directory
instead of the ones defined by the standard (and chosen via the PATH).
So this is why I find it necessary to introduce the install variable.
Since it defaults to "install" no other host platform should be affected
and if other platforms have install in odd places the Solaris host method
can be used as well.
