try running make install as root. 

As ever Unix is being totally truthfull, not pulling any ounches. You're
installing into /usr/local thus you as a user have no rights to write
anything there - si 'Permission is denied'. Generally after building
software from source with some user account, you need to run `make
install` as root. 

hope this helps,
