I'm trying to compile clamav and I have already run:


But when I run make install it returns with this error :

make[4]: *** [install-libLTLIBRARIES] Error 1
make[4]: Leaving directory `/home/shocktic/Downloads/clamav-0.98/libclamav'
make[3]: *** [install-am] Error 2
make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/shocktic/Downloads/clamav-0.98/libclamav'
make[2]: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/shocktic/Downloads/clamav-0.98/libclamav'
make[1]: *** [install] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/shocktic/Downloads/clamav-0.98/libclamav'
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1

Will someone please let me know what I need to do or what I'm doing wrong.
