• Please adjust Automake on “make install” to do (per default or with
an option) atomic install of files, even when libtool is involved: the
file is moved to a temporary destination first, and then rename(2)d, or
the source is moved to the destination, disappearing from the source,
or something like this.

As a workaround, I would write a script using the DESTDIR variable. First running make install DESTDIR=/some/path (please refer to the manual for details) and then move (rename) files from there to their final destination - or include the script in the Makefile if certain make variables are needed.
