Yesterday I told you how I couldn't get the first make to work when 
compiling the libwww. Thanks to several helpful folks I've gotten beyond 
that (needed to use the GNU make), but I'm still having troubles. When I 
try to make install (using GNU make) I get the following error message:

# /usr/local/bin/make install

I am doing this as root so there's no permission errors... any ideas?
