-1 on adding such a test. Some people may rely on the current behaviour, and use that to put the installation into some intermediate location (although DESTDIR would be a better approach for that). Also, how many variables would you want to protect from being changed? People may come up with ideas of changing arbitrary other Makefile variables, and guarding all of them is just not feasible.

I propose to close this as "won't fix".
