the problem is not permissions. else the errror would have been 'permission
denied'. the problem is that make thinks everything is done when it isn't.
karpet@cartermac 45% sudo make install
make: `install' is up to date.
the Makefile.in is very simple -- too simple, somehow, for OS X.
I tried it just now on Linux and, as you experienced, it works fine. So seems
like the OS X version of make is not working as expected.
