Just had a look at it and I think it's bug in automake too. The problem seems
to be that $ac_aux_dir is not initialized. Adding a AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR or
AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR([.]) fixes it for me.

Long story:
- "/bin/sh: /home/miki/install-sh" comes from $install_sh,
- $install_sh comes out of install-sh.m4:
  install_sh="\${SHELL} $am_aux_dir/install-sh"
- $am_aux_dir comes out of auxdir.m4:
  am_aux_dir=`cd $ac_aux_dir && pwd`
- And if $ac_aux_dir is not initialized, we end up with the home directory as
prefix in $am_aux_dir.
