First of all: I compiled 1.3.140 on SuSE 7.1. But I needed a whole
day to comprehend the technique. And I got this message, too in a
certain situation. But I can't remember the exact status.

I perceived the messages can be due to totally different
problems. For instance: If you forgot to install the kpathsea header package
there is only a small warning during configure. The error occurs
10 minutes later and is of "can't find ...", or "checksum error"
(or so).

I recommend to de-install all TeX packages. An then re-install
tetex, te_mpost, te_kpath (likewise te_latex).

On SuSE-7.1 I perceived they forget a "texconfig -->rebuild ls-R database"
in some (?) situations. I recommend to do this " by hand " after 

As a last hint: There is (was?) a problem in LilyPond-Makefile which

make[1]: Entering directory `/fs4/home/ja/LILY/lilypond-1.3.140/mutopia'
../mutopia/mutopia.make:23: *** can't find LilyPond's stepmake installation.  

Ignore this and copy 


and possibly other directories "by hand" to the destination directory.
