No you didn't miss anything - the binary will run happily anywhere.
INSTALL is just a helper script to put the vm in your path so that you can then directly run snapshots.
If you look at a snapshot in a text editor you will see that it starts with a #! string. If you have the Self vm on your path and chmod Clean-4.4.snap to make it executable you can then run the snapshot directly rather than having to do "Self -s snapshotname".
