It looks you did you the autoconf way of compiling, we do recommend the
tradional way of compiling as described in ACE-INSTALL.html. Also, please
upgrade to x.5.9, the x.5 version is already getting old. It looks the make
install is failing because of file system permissions, do you have
permission to add files to /usr/local/lib?

	For Mac, i require ACE dylib. 

	For that, what i am doing is, downloading the source code from the
http://download.dre.vanderbilt.edu/. I successfully downloaded
ACE+TAO+CIAO.tar file. We didn't find any ACE dylib in one of the folders
$ACE_ROOT/ace and $ACE_ROOT/lib after untar. So I build the source code by
setting corresponding environment variables as specified in

	In the Building phase, we are getting error at "make install".
Please find the error below:

	$ make install
	make install-recursive
	Making install in .
	test -z "/usr/local/lib" || /tmp/ACE_wrappers/aux_config/install-sh
-d "/usr/local/lib"
	/bin/sh ../libtool --mode=install /usr/bin/install -c 'libACE.la'
	/usr/bin/install -c .libs/libACE.5.5.0.dylib
	install: /usr/local/lib/libACE.5.5.0.dylib: Permission denied
	make[4]: *** [install-libLTLIBRARIES] Error 71
	make[3]: *** [install-am] Error 2
	make[2]: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
	make[1]: *** [install] Error 2
	make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1

		What do you mean by "installed"? A traditional build will
have the libraries and applications for ACE in the source code tree and
"make install" has no useful meaning. Or do you mean that it is having
trouble building (e.g. no libACE.so is created in $ACE_ROOT/ace or
$ACE_ROOT/lib depending on version)? If you need more help you will need to
be more specific on the issues and symptoms.
