make sure to read the README and INSTALL files, there may be some useful hints there.
Yes, I have run "make" before "make install". At first I tried also "checkinstall", it gave me this error, so to exclude possible error of checkinstall I tried "make install", no matter I am not able to uninstall it later.
This error is very strange, I have never seen something like this before. Should I try to compile some different application? Just to see if this "make install" error does not occur also here?
The funny aspect is, that I don't think that "make install" is so highly experimental.
