Looks like a bug in automake to me ... I'll investigate.

3 possibilities:

1. Don't use install-if-change (It's not used by the RTEMS source tree
and it's general usefulness is arguable).

2. As a temporary work-around, you can change this fragment at the end
of tools/


AC_CONFIG_FILES([install-if-change],[chmod a+x install-if-change])

3. Change the protections manually.
