Sounds like it's using "install" when it should be using "ginstall".
config.mak.uname contains, under the SunOS category:

	INSTALL = /usr/ucb/install

But gitweb/Makefile seems to forget to include ../config.mak.uname.
How about this patch?

Subject: gitweb: use system-appropriate defaults for commands

Attempting to install gitweb on Solaris 11 produces

 $ gmake install
...
 gmake -C gitweb install
 gmake[1]: Entering directory `/export/home/build/git-2.21.0/gitweb'
 gmake[2]: Entering directory `/export/home/build/git-2.21.0'
 gmake[2]: `GIT-VERSION-FILE' is up to date.
 gmake[2]: Leaving directory `/export/home/build/git-2.21.0'
     GEN gitweb.cgi
     GEN static/gitweb.js

This is because the default "install" tool on SunOS doesn't follow the
convention we require.  Use the /usr/ucb/install command specified in
config.mak.uname instead to fix it.

This should also help on other platforms where the default "install"
command is not functional enough.

Completely untested.  Junio, please don't apply this without Jeffrey's
