   The thing is that `make distcheck` is not supposed to actually
install anything anywhere, it creates a temporary directory and
installs things there afaik. I am running everything as normal user
who do not have write access to those directories but that should not
be a problem.

   If you look into the, i am also installing the guile
plugin file into the xchat plugin directory but that doesn't cause any

test -z 
|| /bin/mkdir -p
 /bin/sh ./libtool   --mode=install /usr/bin/install -c  ''
/usr/bin/install -c .libs/
/usr/bin/install -c .libs/guile.lai
PATH="$PATH:/sbin" ldconfig -n

   Here are the relevant lines:
