I just did 'make install' because according to the osx section of the
README:

        On a clean OSX /usr/local does not exist. Do a
        "sudo mkdir -m 775 /usr/local"
        before you do a make install. It is probably not a good idea
to
        do "sudo make install" which installs everything as superuser,
        as this may later cause problems when installing distutils-
based
        additions.
jal.
