I am running as root when I get that error. I ./configure and make as user 
mbse, then su to root and make install. I saw this error a couple months ago 
while I was looking at unstable and I couldn't "make install" also.

It's required to "make install" that package as root else I get an error "You 
are not root!"

ATM I am back to sarge and make install does work fine. There is something 
just different enough to give me this error but I'm not sure what, I'll keep

Aside from this package I don't compile a lot of software so I don't have a 
lot of experience in the real world if other packages also have trouble with 
make install. Next time I am in etch I'll try another package aside from this 
one and see how it goes.

I'm reasonably certain that you "make install" as root on a regular basis with 
no problem?
