My opinion: I think it's safer not to install it to $(p11_module_path).
p11-kit-proxy.so is a special module that should not be in the standard
path for PKCS#11 modules.
It's the sort of module we don't want loaded automatically alongside
other modules. Since $(p11_module_path) is also the default location for
p11-kit-proxy.so to lookup the modules it loads, I'm worried about
people having recursive loading problems.
