"/usr/bin/install: cannot create regular file
'/usr/share/groff/1.22.2/font/devpdf/util/BuildFoundries': No such file or
directory"

Error with more detail captured from my "install" wrapper script
"------ original command -------------
 install -c -m 644 util/BuildFoundries
/usr/share/groff/1.22.2/font/devpdf/util/BuildFoundries
 present working directory is:
"/usr/src/groff-1.22.2/groff-1.22.2-build/font/devpdf"
 ------ one of the resulting commands actually run -------
 /usr/bin/install -m 644  "util/BuildFoundries"
"/usr/share/groff/1.22.2/font/devpdf/util/BuildFoundries"
 error_code is: 1
 ERROR: /usr/bin/install: cannot create regular file
'/usr/share/groff/1.22.2/font/devpdf/util/BuildFoundries': No such
file or directory"

Running mkdir -p /usr/share/groff/1.22.2/font/devpdf/util before "make install"

prevented the error.

=======================================================================

On another note, there is this sequence of commands for make install...
mkdir -p -- /usr/share/doc/groff-1.22.2/examples/chem/122
rm -f /usr/share/doc/groff-1.22.2/examples/chem/*
rm: cannot remove '/usr/share/doc/groff-1.22.2/examples/chem/122': Is
a directory

So should the directory /usr/share/doc/groff-1.22.2/examples/chem/122
and it's contents actually have been removed?

Thanks,
Robert Taylor
