some (hopefully) usefull notes:
- why are you trying to install 'bin/ali2gff' instead of 'ali2gff' only?
- why not using /usr/bin/install for everything when copying files, it has
  useful features, eg:
   -D     create all leading components of DEST except the last, then
          copy  SOURCE  to  DEST; useful in the 1st format
  (please see the full manpage for the install command, this is just a
  hint for the nonexisting /tmp/bin/ above)

last but not least you could set up DESTDIR this way:
at the beginning of the Makefile, then you can forget it :) then either
use /usr/bin/install as said above or leave the original $(CP) and
create the $(INSTALLDIR) yourself with mkdir in the installbin target.
Change LBIN to fit your needs and you're done (maybe you want to install
under /usr/bin actually, not /bin)
