Very strange - especially since "make" seems to work for you. Was there
any output when you tried "make install"? Or did it just seem to hang?
What happens if you remove the "@" sign before the if statement below
(the one above the ^ symbol)?

   @ # The following action MUST be a single action. That is, all lines
   @ # except the last line must have a backslash (\) at the end to
   @ # continue the statement. The reason for this is that Make does not
   @ # have an exit command thus, exit terminates the shell. However, 
   @ # Make creates a new shell for each action listed for a target.
   @ # Therefore, the only way exit will quit Make is if there is only
   @ # a single action for the target.
   @ # Check if grass has been compiled, if INST_DIR is writable, and if
   @ # grass is part of INST_DIR
   @ if [ ! -f ${GRASS_BIN}/grass${NAME_VER} ] ; then \
   ^   echo "ERROR: Grass has not been compiled. Try \"make\" first."; \
       echo "  Installation aborted, exiting Make."; \

Is anything printed out if you try "make install" now? Finally if you
still don't see anything, then please send me your copy of your Makefile
(not Makefile.in).
