I'm not sure if this is a problem with 'install' or with my setup, but when I try to install my package I get the following error message:

make[1]: Entering directory `/home/peterJo/projects/software/pipeline'
test -z "/mnt/hpc/local/bin" || /bin/mkdir -p "/mnt/hpc/local/bin"
 /usr/bin/install -c '/mnt/hpc/local/bin'
/usr/bin/install: setting permissions for `/mnt/hpc/local/bin/': Permission denied
make[1]: *** [install-binSCRIPTS] Error 1

This is with coreutils 8.4:
$ /usr/bin/install --version
install (GNU coreutils) 8.4

'/mnt/hpc' is a Samba share so I first thought that I lacked permission to write their, but that is obviously not the case because the call 'install /mnt/hpc/local/bin' is successful. FWIW, chmod 755 /mnt/hpc/local/bin/ works as expected without warnings. So what is different between chmod and install's way of setting permission.

Let me know if I can provide anything else of interest.


p.s. I'm not subscribed, so please cc. d.s.
