I was trying to install grass7.0 through svn so I could do some testing 
and see some of the future development. I had no errors after typing in 
make, but when I make install I get the following:

root at silver:/usr/local/src/grass_trunk# make install
echo /usr/local/src/grass_trunk/bin.x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu/grass70
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/local/src/grass_trunk'

/usr/bin/install -c  gem/gem70  2>/dev/null
make[1]: [real-install] Error 1 (ignored)
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/grass_trunk'

I can not seem to get the install made, any pointers on this one.



p.s Thanks to the user and dev groups for helping out with all previous 
p.p.s. I have really enjoyed using GRASS since the move away from tcl-tk 
towards wx-python. The interface is far more user friendly and I hope it 
will appeal to other GIS users out there.
