I'm not so sure about that.  MM_VMS had code like this in 6.17.

# See MM_VMS->subdir_x
subdirs ::
        olddef = F$Environment("Default")
        Set Default [.subdir]
        Set Default 'olddef'

Which will produce results similar to yours above.  So I think having
multiple macro qualifiers is ok.  The length is a problem.  I think its
the addition of DESTDIR that nudges the command over the edge.  Thinking of 
it more I don't think its necessary since install is not recursive.

I removed it from the latest snap.

I just changed the dependencies back to .exists files everywhere.
