What I've seen everyone do and what I've started doing myself is to just
create the file in some work sandbox, and then copy it over to the final
location with install(1) or ginstall(1) and use -m to set the mode.

IIRC, autoconf creates an install script automatically and uses that if
there is not one installed in the system.
