Did you include the "sudo" before the "make frameworkinstall"?  If  
not, did you make sure you really have write access to the path given  
in the --enable-framework option?  If you don't have write access,  
you will have a whole slew of errors attempting to install the  
framework.  Those errors don't stop the build, and you may not notice  
them until something tries to actually use the files that were  
supposed to be installed.  It might be prudent to look earlier in the  
build output to see if there were other errors or failures.
