Automake does not do it this way.  Instead, upon 'make install', all
files are installed, not just any that are out of date wrt. the current

Since installation is typically a rather rare event, and one at which
most files are changed, this is often a good approximation.  For files
for which you write install-/uninstall-local rules yourself, you could
do more fine-grained as above; but for info, typically the automake
rules are used through info_TEXINFOS.

Hope that helps.
