Use of 'install' in Makefile

I use the ‘install’ command in a Makefile to copy some text templates from the source directory to an installation directory. But when the file is already in the target directory and is newer it should not be overwritten.

I can’t seem to see an option for install to trigger this. How to do it?

Then perhaps you should be using cp with -u and not install.

Yes, cp -u does what I want. I was just wondering whether I overlooked something. I was really of the impression that install can do it, but probably not.

Thanks a lot.
