problem installing module-init-tools

Trying to install module-init-tools-0.9.12 (so I can try the 2.5.70 kernel) yields this dissapointing output:

I had it working on slackware 9. This is on Arch linux 0.5 however (still with gcc 3.2.1 though).

Any suggestions?

that was dumb.
the obvious solution:

Make a symlink from /bin/install to /usr/bin/install
(or change the makefile but I have yet to figure that out)

(Thanks to Xentac on the archlinux forum)

...damn I should have thought of that
