Apparently, the patch for the -C option to install was written many
years ago and never merged in coreutils and was eventually dropped.
The version RH shipped with RHEL4 includes this patch (have a look at
the src rpm). Most likely, RH dropped it in RHEL5 for lack of it being
maintained, merged and/or incompatible. It was never an officially
supported feature of coreutils.
