Installation problem

This is a "This should be cleaned up before final release" report.

When I "make" lilypond 1.3.150 on my more or less virgin RedHat 6.2
system, as me, it seems to complete without errors.

However, when, as root, I "make install", I get:

Processing volta-bracket-interface ... Backtrace:
0* [eval-string " ;;; generate-documentation.scm -- Generate documentation ;;;$
1* (let* (# # # #) (writing-wip outname) (display # out))
2* [open-output-file "lilypond-internals.texi"]
3  [open-file "lilypond-internals.texi" "w"]

ERROR: In procedure open-file in expression (open-file str OPEN_WRITE):

make[2]: *** [out/lilypond-internals.nexi] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory 
make[1]: *** [install] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory 
make: *** [install] Error 2

It looks to me like "make install" is using a local directory, where
redhat does not allow root to write.  So either something should be
done in "make" that is currently done in "make install", or the "make
install" should be told to put its temp files somewhere else.  Or at
the very least, this step shouldn't stop the make.
