Installing from install-data-local

I have this rule in my

                $(mkinstalldirs) $(docdir)/manual
                $(INSTALL_DATA) $(srcdir)/manual/* $(docdir)/manual

This breaks the "distcheck" target; because apparently distcheck's _inst
directory is not writable when this rule is run.

        mkdir -p -- 
        mkdir: cannot create directory 
 Permission denied

Why is _inst not writable? Is there a correct way of doing what I'm
trying to do? (Explicity listing all the files in the "manual"
subdirectory is impractical; that is why I have not used the DATA
