Don't do that either. You will never get it correct doing anything but
make install (using gmake).

Your config in an old install tree will not be overwritten in any way by
doing that. But that assumes a full install tree from a previous make
install. Anything else is not something I can predict, but in general, the
config install step is simply "if same file exists, don't overwrite".
