This may not be directly related, but you are making life hard for 
yourself installing things where they shouldn't be. It looks like 
you've been reading the (very very) old packaging instructions. Things 
are no-longer installed under /var/lib/install. Instead they are 
installed in the usual location /usr/bin and so on. This makes life 
easier when building things and also means the end user can update the 
binaries that come pre-installed.
