Is there a way to address that problem? (-no-fast-install?)

There's a TODO list item to make this work everywhere with
--enable-fast-install (which is the default).  ......

Good to know

.....  Until then,
there is the workaround of doing a
 make install DESTDIR=/tmp/dest

as normal user, and then as root, copying that tree to its final
location, then a
 libtool --mode=finish $libdir..

That works is the package is properly DESTDIRized; unfortunately quite a few
packages use automake plus non-DESTDIRized install-{data,exec}-hooks.

And one has to be careful with setuid/setgid files.

So, this is really just a workaround.

Hope that helps.

I just moved everything to a local filessystem.

regards         Peter
