Can you run "make", but not "make install"?

First, make sure that ranlib can be found on your path. Run the
"which ranlib" command to verify this. If it's not on your path,
add one of the directories and try again. (I don't know which would be

Second, check to see if configure found ranlib. In the listing which
configure generates you should see something like
"checking for ranlib... ranlib". If it scrolls past too quickly, you
can capture a log file by executing "./configure | tee configure.log".
You can also look at the config.log file which configure generates.
You should see something like
    configure:6084: checking for ranlib
    configure:6100: found /usr/bin/ranlib
    configure:6111: result: ranlib
but with the correct paths.

Third, make sure that ranlib is an executable file. You should
see something like the following:
    $ ls -l /usr/bin/ranlib
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 49K Jun 29 2005 /usr/bin/ranlib*
