The right fix IMHO is to have an empty 'install' target in the top-level 
Makefile (httpd-test/perl-framework). Why spreading a complicated messed 
up Makefile bits all over and making the maintenance harder?

why should it? It has nothing to do with httpd, other than httpd using it.

Regardless, believe me you really do want to ship it, at least for the 
fact that the httpd-test suite is broken most of the time.
