I'm trying to install protobuf on linux 64bit, but stuck with error
while doing
"make check"
I would like to install this in my local path
so I did this ./configure --prefix=(my path)

here is what I get when I do
$make check
/bin/sh ../libtool  --tag=CXX   --mode=compile g++ -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I.
-I..    -pthread -Wall -Wwrite-strings -Woverloaded-virtual -Wno-sign-
compare -O2 -g -DNDEBUG -MT descriptor.lo -MD -MP -MF .deps/
descriptor.Tpo -c -o descriptor.lo `test -f 'google/protobuf/
descriptor.cc' || echo './'`google/protobuf/descriptor.cc

./google/protobuf/descriptor.h:1152: error:

make[1]: *** [descriptor.lo] Error 1

Could someone please help, is there a way of installing this in my
local path without being a superuser?
