    tried to install GTK engine... something didn't work

    I tried to install aurora 1.5 engine and went through "./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-animation" and "make" fine, but when i entered "make install", the terminal said this:

    make[1]: Entering directory `/home/renee/GTK stuff/ENGINES/56438-aurora-1.5.1/aurora-1.5'
    make[1]: Nothing to be done for `install-exec-am'.
    test -z "/usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/engines" || /bin/mkdir -p "/usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/engines"
    /bin/bash ./libtool --mode=install /usr/bin/install -c 'libaurora.la' '/usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/engines/libaurora.la'
    /usr/bin/install -c .libs/libaurora.so /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/engines/libaurora.so
    /usr/bin/install: cannot create regular file `/usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/engines/libaurora.so': Permission denied
    make[1]: *** [install-engineLTLIBRARIES] Error 1
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/renee/GTK stuff/ENGINES/56438-aurora-1.5.1/aurora-1.5'
    make: *** [install-am] Error 2

    ...I can't figure out what this means. Am I missing a package, or did I do the commands wrong?

    Re: tried to install GTK engine... something didn't work

    I tried it on my *test* CentOS-5 system and was able to compile gimp 2.4. However, it was not a "clean" installation as planned, but rather a quick and dirty solution. This is because some packages needed a newer version than what is available from CentOS and I installed them from fc6 thus overwriting the distro files. I am going to find out if anything on the system is broken due to this action. Just for anyone's info, here is a list of packages that are updated by fc6 rpm's
