Hello Justin,

It says: "make: `install' is up to date." and it does nothing other then return the command prompt.  It doesn't hang or apparently do anything.

After I removed the @ byte, it says the same thing.  I will send you the Makefile personally.  I am about to do a make clean and compile beta 11 pre 2.  I will let you know how that works.

One note, I ran the make script as root and proceeded despite the warning.  I think I am going to compile pre2 as a regular user....
