[fpc-devel] 'fpmake install' should do what?

While trying to only recompile and install the 'fcl-fpcunit'
directory, I played around with the fpmake build system. I'm using FPC

My directory layout is as follows:

             ^---- install location for:  make install

                          ^---- svn checkout of 2.2.3

The following was tried while inside: /opt/fpc_2.2.3/src/packages/fcl-fpcunit/

* I can compile fpmake.pp without problems.
* I can build the source code without problems using:
     ./fpmake build -UG /opt/fpc_2.2.3/lib/fpc/2.2.3/units/i386-linux/
* I can archive the source code without problems using
     ./fpmake archive

What is the 'install' option supposed to do???  Where does it install do?

I ran the following and got no output. No errors no nothing. It also didn't
install to the /opt/fpc_2.2.3/lib/fpc/2.2.3/units/i386-linux/fcl-fpcunit/
as I hoped for.

   ./fpmake install -B /opt/fpc_2.2.3 -UG

I thought the -B option might need to be the same as:
    make install INSTALL_PREFIX=/opt/fpc_2.2.3
