Sorry for not providing background info:

I am preparing a Makefile for a future update
to a package of mine on CTAN. This Makefile will have 
targets "installhome" and "installlocal" for the user
with a TeX installation offering TEXMFHOME and TEXMFLOCAL.

Thus, it is not for personal use, or rather those two
targets are not the ones useful to me the author. 

I wrote the
Makefile to automatize production of my package.tds.zip
and package.zip for CTAN submission. (currently 10 files
*.sty, 3 pdf's, 2 html's, 1 plain text file, the .dtx,
the Makefile, and the .ins file which is not needed anyhow
as etex package.dtx extracts all).
