security difference between sudo make install versus sudo su make install


Is there a security difference between doing

sudo make install

versus two step

sudo su

and then typing

make install

The reason I’m asking is because a security requirement to install some software says you must type exactly ‘make install’ (not sudo make install) – presumably for some permission reasons.

However, the ‘make install’ requires writing to root directories apparently so the only way to get it to install would be to first enter the ‘sudo su’ terminal, then to type ‘make install’ – is there any security difference in terms of permissions, root,user,group read-write permissions or anything like that between these two methods of installing?
