openssh-3.9p1 for Mac OS X

I attempted to setup openssh-3.9p1 on Mac OS X (10.3.7). The 
./configure and make work fine but 'make install' fails with:

computer:~/XDev/openssh-3.9p1 bcburke$ make install
if test ! -z ""; then \
         /usr/bin/perl ./fixprogs ssh_prng_cmds ; \
(cd openbsd-compat && make)
make[1]: Nothing to be done for `all'.
(cd scard && make DESTDIR= install)
../mkinstalldirs /usr/local/share
make[1]: execvp: ../mkinstalldirs: Permission denied
make[1]: *** [install] Error 127
make: *** [scard-install] Error 2

This error occurs even if done as root. Is this just a permission 
problem or is there more to it?

Any pointers would be appreciated.
