install-strip doesn't work

Using the latest CVS admin dir, I tried to install-strip a kde package, but it
admin/install-sh: -m4755 does not exist
The cause lies in the way install-strip invokes install:
$(MAKE) $(AM_MAKEFLAGS) INSTALL_PROGRAM="$(INSTALL_STRIP_PROGRAM)" \
`test -z '$(STRIP)' || \
echo "INSTALL_PROGRAM_ENV=STRIPPROG='$(STRIP)'"` install
Here, there formerly assigned INSTALL_PROGRAM (/usr/bin/install) is reassigned
the INSTALL_STRIP_PROGRAM which happens to point to admin/install-sh. This is
no problem per se, but binaries invoke install like this:
$(INSTALL_PROGRAM) -m4755 ...
It's because install-sh simply cannot handle -m4755 (it should have been
written as -m 4755), and therefore chokes.
Is this a problem of the KDE build system, or is this a problem of automake?
(Or is it a mistake of my own?)
