Ah, there's a double depenency chain.

The top level make file has:

install: default

Which causes "make install" to run the top level default target,
which runs the default target in all the target subdirs.

Then, in each subdir, the makefile has:

install: default

Which when then install target is actually run, does another
dependency check because it's got a local dependency on the depend
target via the default target.

Replace the previous patch with the one below and try again.
Now the "make install" will rebuild targets out of the local
dependencies rather than a separate run of the top level default
target (i.e. only traverse directories once).

xfsprogs: clean up make install build V2

The install targets did not get the silent treatment like the
normal build targets. Shut them up.

Also, remove the top level install target dependency on the default
target. Each sub-directory already defines the correct dependencies
for the install targets and so all the rebuilds can be done in one
traversal of the subdirectories via the install rules.
