I found a problem in autoconf . I got messages such as this when doing "make install" :

../../../libtool: line 1: /home/jmv/install: is a directory

Indeed such as file exists and is a link to a direstory :

ls -l /home/jmv/install
lrwxrwxrwx    1 jmv   jmv   14 jan  2 08:10   /home/jmv/install -> 

Apparently, when it's a link, configure (generated by autoconf) thinks that it's necessarily a link to an executable ...
Workaround :

export INSTALL=/usr/bin/install ; make -e install
