[aur-general] "install" recursive?

I was told it was best practice to use "install" rather than "mkdir"
and "cp" in a PKGBUILD, but how can you copy a directory and its
contents (recursively) using "install"?

If you cannot, with a folder with lots of files, is it best practice
to list every file to copy with "install", or use one command to "cp"
the whole folder?
