the `make` output makes it look like it's going into / and such, but it isn't.  
the install-sh script rewrites the path silently behind the scenes.

alternatively, maybe you didn't rebuild autotools after applying the patch ?  
the code will copy include/install-sh to the top level, and then everything 
executes that rather than the original in the include/ subdir.
