./checksetup for bugzilla3 on debian 5.0 generate permission denied


When I attempt to run a ./ I am getting the following error message.

Creating /var/lib/bugzilla3/data/pdsphaseibugs/attachments directory...
mkdir /var/lib/bugzilla3/data/pdsphaseibugs/attachments failed: Permission denied at /usr/share/perl5/Bugzilla/Install/ line 385.

The script su to www-data and here is a copy of the directory the script is executed from :

fuidsg46:/usr/share/perl5/Bugzilla/Install# ls -la
total 276
drwxr-xr-x 2 root www-data 4096 2011-01-11 12:17 .
drwxr-xr-x 16 root root 4096 2011-01-11 12:17 ..

-rw-r--r-- 1 root www-data 26657 2010-11-21 08:45

Can anyone tell me WHY I would be getting permission denied when creating a directory?
