As someone (Antony Smith, to give credit) just sent me an email about, if you do 'make install' without doing 'make', you'll get this error because of a makefile bug. One could make the case you didn't follow the docs, to do 'make' and then 'make install', but I'll take the blame on this one :)

Run a 'make' or 'make all' first before your make install.
