[plt-scheme] DrScheme installation problem

Hi everyone,

I downloaded the DrScheme gzipped tarball and tried compiling and 
installing it on my Linux machine (SuSE Linux 8.1 Pro, kernel version 

The configure and make steps work fine, aside from some warnings issued 
by make which I assume are no problem (they're warnings, right?). I 
passed these options to configure: "--prefix=/usr/local/plt 

Make install fails immediately, printing the following text:

if [ ! -d /usr/local/plt ] ; then mkdir /usr/local/plt ; fi
cp -p -r ./../collects /usr/local/plt/.
cp: `./../collects' and `/usr/local/plt/./collects' are the same file
make: *** [copytree] Error 1

Of course, 'cp' is absolutely correct: since I'm running make install in 
/usr/local/plt/src, ./../collects is /usr/local/plt/collects, and 
/usr/local/plt/./collects is also /usr/local/plt/collects.

What am I doing wrong? Any help would be appreciated.
