Yeah, me too. rm -rf ./vacation - and it suddenly works OK.

make clobber; make all; make install

The Makefile appears to be broken
Perhaps I am missing something, but on two different linux boxes (up-to-date debian woody and not-at-all-up-to-date Redhat 6.2 (which is too old to install the RPM), I get this when I do a "make install":

install -s -m 755 vacation /usr/bin/vacation
install: `vacation' is a directory
make: *** [install] Error 1


Which is, in fact, true - and "make install" doesn't appear to actually make anything at all. What am I missing?
