 Summary of the bug:

 install fails because the working directory is changed twice in a single

 How to reproduce:
 download (latest) source
 run configure with relative path for --prefix. ie. --prefix=install

 INSTALL libavdevice/libavdevice.so
 STRIP   install-libavdevice-shared
 cd: 1: can't cd to install/lib

 this seems to be because the command which is executed actually changes
 from working dir to install/lib ( which is good ) and then another cd
 command is executed ( also to install/lib ) but this fails because the
 working dir was already set to this directory.
