System: make install seems to do nothing

(last edit: 2000-11-22) When you do a 'make install' in a port directory the cursor imediatly goes to the a new line and nothing happens, the package isn't installed. There has probaley been an previous 'make install'. See the work dir in the port, if it is there than a 'make install' has been done, see the contens to see the progress of the previous 'make install'. First type 'make clean' for some reason this hasn't been done or hasn't been done propper the last time. After you've done a 'make install' make sure you do a 'make clean' to prevent this problem for happening again next time.
