I see where the problem is now. I understand the /usr - /usr/local

I use /usr for everything. During the build process executable
binaries should go in /usr/bin. The sentence says copy it there. If it
is not there already then where is it? Does it not get put there until
make install? Because the same paragraph says it needs to be there
before running make test, which is done before make install.
