Let's say you have the source of nginx and it is read-only.
Doing "make install" would preserve the read-only attributes. Then calling "make install" again would fail with "Permission denied", because cp would not overwrite read-only files.
I feel the correct behavior is for the install to succeeded no matter the read-only attributes of source files.
