I encountered this too, the reason for the failure is that none of the helper scripts in storage/tokudb/PerconaFT/xz/src/build_lzma/build-aux/ are set as executable, including install-sh.

Pasting the relevant lines from plain ./configure && make install in xz's source:
test -z "/usr/local/include" || ../../../build-aux/install-sh -c -d "/usr/local/include"
/bin/sh: ../../../build-aux/install-sh: Permission denied
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for a thread-safe mkdir -p... build-aux/install-sh -c -d

Also the reason why this doesn't happen for other setups is most likely having gnu's coreutils from Homebrew or otherwise installed, in which case xz's configure defaults to using ginstall(1) instead of fallback install-sh wrapper.

Can I get some pointers as to whether it is best to try and fix in xz tarball, PerconaFT upstream or workaround in cmake config?

Best regards,
