Hello all,

I tried to do a "make install" (after compiling it) of the latest DCC on 
a machine running Debian/Lenny (x86). But it fails with:

+(627 /..cc-1.3.92)# make 
for DIR in  dccm .; do\
            if test "$DIR" != .; then\
                (cd $DIR; make deinstall); fi; done
make[1]: Entering directory 
rm -f /var/dcc/libexec/dccm
make[1]: Leaving directory 
./autoconf/install-sh -c -d -o root -g bin -m 755 /usr/local/man/man8
mkdir: cannot create directory `/usr/local/man': File exists
mkdir: cannot create directory `/usr/local/man/man8': No such file or 
make: *** [/usr/local/man/man8] Error 1

Does anyone know how to fix this or what's causing it?
