I am in chapter 6, section 6.39. The configure and make steps ran well. In make check there is an unexpected error.

On the terminal make dumps this message:
 FAIL: old_prefix: locate failed, /compilation/findutils-4.4.2/locate/testsuite/../locate: `tmp/locatedb': No such file or directory
Running /compilation/findutils-4.4.2/locate/testsuite/locate.gnu/regex1.exp ...

Running /compilation/findutils-4.4.2/locate/testsuite/locate.gnu/sv-bug-14535.exp ...

        === locate Summary ===

# of expected passes        31

locate (GNU findutils) 4.4.2
make[4]: *** [check-DEJAGNU] Error 1
make[4]: Leaving directory `/compilation/findutils-4.4.2/locate/testsuite'
make[3]: *** [check-am] Error 2

make[1]: *** [check] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/compilation/findutils-4.4.2/locate'
make: *** [check-recursive] Error 1

I then looked into the old_prefix.exp file. This file writes the locatedb and locate test complains about locatedb being absent. What should I do to get locatedb? I think that will get the test passing.
