That builds hypermail.

That installs hypermail and related files. I hate to admit that it even attempts to copy docs to an apache directory (why does it do that?).

That cleans up generated files used for building.

You can always do 'make -n [target]' to see what it would do. -n makes make run in show-only mode.

You should make sure that this actually replaces the binary in use. Hypermail is binary you can put anywhere and have it execute, you don't need 'make install' for that. The person who installed hypermail on your system may have copied it anywhere...
