src2pkg "FAILURE in make_install"

I tried compiling portaudio with a src2pkg script:

bash-3.1# src2pkg -X portaudio.src2pkg
Running build script: portaudio.src2pkg
Found source archive: portaudio_18.1.orig.tar.gz
Creating working directories:

Applying: portaudio_18.1-6.diff.gz

src2pkg FAILURE in make_install
I compiled: espeak-1.30 ok and got a package, but with
portaudio it stopped at make install.
What would be the problem with this?

I finished it with:
bash-3.1# make -i PREFIX=/tmp/portaudio-18.1-pkg-1/usr install

I got the following message:
/usr/libexec/src2pkg/bin/ginstall -c -m 644 lib/ /tmp/portaudio-18.1-pkg-1/usr/lib/
/usr/libexec/src2pkg/bin/ginstall: cannot create regular file `/tmp/portaudio-18.1-pkg-1/usr/lib/': No such file or directory

make: [install] Error 1 (ignored)

PortAudio was successfully installed.

On some systems (e.g. Linux) you should run 'ldconfig' now
to make the shared object available. You may also need to
modify your LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable to include
the directory /tmp/portaudio-18.1-pkg-1/usr/lib
I didn't find any files in /tmp/portaudio-18.1-pkg-1/
or in /tmp

This would be better moved to the Slackware forum.
