 The parts of the Makefile that say `make install` has been disabled are
 still there, but `make install` actually works in 1.8.0. I do not know
 whether that change was intentional or just an unintended consequence of
 other changes. Someone [https://github.com/google/googletest/issues/902
 asked the developers for clarification] and the developers closed the
 issue without answering the question. I have asked them to re-open it.

 While the upstream situation is a bit odd, it is what it is. Can we close
