So your host install program doesn't seem to like doing install -D <file> <dir>
- What version/distribution are you using?

On my Debian machine it works:

mkdir /tmp/blah
touch /tmp/blih
install -m 0644 -D /tmp/blih /tmp/blah
ls -lah /tmp/blih
-rw-r--r-- 1 peko peko 0 2009-07-20 22:24 /tmp/blih
install --version
install (GNU coreutils) 7.4
