Disabling pcap and viha lets me compile it, but 'make install' always dies with...

david-moores-computer:/downloads/firefox/kismet-2006-04-r1 davidmoore$ make suidinstall
make -e commoninstall
mkdir -p /usr/local/etc
mkdir: /usr/local/etc: Permission denied
make[1]: *** [commoninstall] Error 1
make: *** [suidinstall] Error 2

or

david-moores-computer:/downloads/firefox/kismet-2006-04-r1 davidmoore$ make install
make -e commoninstall
mkdir -p /usr/local/etc
mkdir: /usr/local/etc: Permission denied
make[1]: *** [commoninstall] Error 1
make: *** [install] Error 2

I'm guessing I'm doing something daft and there's a way to change that /usr/loca/etc...but I don't know how, a wee bit new to mac's + *nix.
