Add install and uninstall. "make PREFIX=/foo/bar install" so far, no ./configure.

'install' should probably depend on 'ironpython', unless there's a reason not to.


@atsushieno , I see that the makefile is still empty [1] and says it is a stub not to be used since msbuild will do the work.

The proper place to put a mono makefile would appear to be in their project [2], but they have obsoleted the use of makefile [3].

Right now the only 'install' for regular IronPython on windows is github clone + msbuild, right? [3] So it seems to me that this makefile should be removed. Do you agree @jdhardy @atsushieno ?
