This error message is indeed obscure, and I'm looking for a better one. 
problem is that it can really mean different things in different 

1. If you do a "current user only" install of a package then anything 
    package tries to install outside of site-packages (like header 
files, or
    scripts, as in this case) is not installed. This is really an error 
    the scapegoat, as there is a way to list all the expected skips in 
2. If you do a system-wide install, but some directories are not 
    you also get this message. This probably means that some directories
    were expected to be writable but weren't. This can be either a 
    error or a user error.

The net result of all this is that you don't have the nibclassbuilder
command line tool.
