I don't know if it's a bug or not, but when I use make it keeps tying
to write things into /usr/local/<something> into which I don't have
write permission. So, it fails.

If make is supposed to make it easy to install programs, why can't
it either install (or compile or whatever) the files into the directory
from which the command has been called, or ask the user where
he/she wants them to be?
