`/usr/man/man3' is not a directory

Hi folks,

Continued building LFS

"6.11.1. Installation of Glibc" which looks more or less the same as "5.8. Glibc-2.3.4-20040701"

The first part went through without complaint.

Since the FC3 box was freshly turned on, re-run following commands;

[satimis@localhost ~]$ su -
[root@localhost ~]# export LFS=/mnt/lfs
[root@localhost ~]# mkdir -p $LFS/{proc,sys}
[root@localhost ~]# mount -t proc proc $LFS/proc
[root@localhost ~]# mount -t sysfs sysfs $LFS/sys
[root@localhost ~]# mount -f -t ramfs ramfs $LFS/dev
[root@localhost ~]# mount -f -t tmpfs tmpfs
[root@localhost ~]# mount -f -t devpts -o
gid=4,mode=620 devpts $LFS/dev/pts

[root@localhost ~]# mount -n -t ramfs none /dev
[root@localhost ~]# mount -t devpts -o gid=4,mode=620 none /dev/pts
mount: mount point /dev/pts does not exist
[root@localhost ~]# mount -t tmpfs none /dev/shm
mount: mount point /dev/shm does not exist
Coming to :-
"Build the linuxthreads man pages, which are a great reference on the threading API (applicable to NPTL as well):"

[root@localhost glibc-build]# make -C ../glibc-2.3.4-20040701/linuxthreads/man
make: Entering directory
make: Nothing to be done for `all'.
make: Leaving directory
[root@localhost glibc-build]# make -C ../glibc-2.3.4-20040701/linuxthreads/man install
make: Entering directory
install *.3thr /usr/man/man3
install: installing multiple files, but last argument,
`/usr/man/man3' is not a directory
Try `install --help' for more information.
make: *** [install] Error 1
Looked at "install --help" but could not figure out the solution.

Please advise. TIA

type cat /usr/man/man3

if it is a text file then i cannot help you as i have no idea what to do about that, but if it does not exist, then a simple mkdir /usr/man/man3 _should_ help
