Shared libs have traditionally been installed as executables due to some
long ago accidents of implementation in historical Unixes.  And there
are various tools which "expect" it (... and this is why they get
created as executable by default by ld).  

Switching to INSTALL_LIB here although I think the whole "define all the
ways you're going to use install" in this makefile a _smidge_ overkill
