I had exactly the same problem when compiling the quick cam software for
my QuickCam Web. I discovered the program couldn't install the man pages
because /usr/local/man/man1 didn't exist so i created that directory
(mkdir /usr/local/man/man1) and then ran "make" again. it all worked...

If you want you could edit one of the files to have it install the man
pages somewhere else besides /usr/local/man/man1...but i dont know which
file :p
