Summary: install (/bin/install) path hardcoded at build

Initial Comment:
Hello,

I recently upgraded coreutils, and the location of install changed from /bin to /usr/bin.

The odd thing is that only ruby extensions failed to build, everything else seems fine.

It is because ruby resolves the path of install during build, and the etensin configuration uses that.

The correct solution is probably to store the user supplied hint - either '' or the path the user specified. That way the manual path can be preserver and the automatically resolved path could work even if the location changes.
