libxslt install problem

Hi, I hope someone can help me with this -- here's my situation:

- installed libxml2 successfully with prefix '/usr/local'
- trying to install libxslt using the following:
# ./configure \
--prefix=/usr/local \
--mandir=/usr/local/share/man \

# make
When 'make' runs, it hits this error:

grep: /usr/lib/ No such file or directory
/bin/sed: can't read /usr/lib/ No such file or directory
libtool: link: `/usr/lib/' is not a valid libtool archive
make[2]: *** [] Error 1
Make is looking in the wrong directory for, which is located in /usr/local/lib/ How can I point to this file so that 'make' will find it?
