Possibly incorrect files / file placement in install directory

With bug #424 fixed (thanks!), I’ve been able to build ITK master for the first time in months.

vcl_compiler_detection.h comes from VXL. Look at https://github.com/vxl/vxl/pull/601 if you want to experiment with install location. Of course, suggestions in form of a PR are highly recommended :smile:

TestDriver*.inc files probably belong there, but README.md probably doesn’t. But this is not a high priority issue.
