[linux-audio-user] building fst fails at make install step

   I'm trying to follow Dave's instructions for building fst-1.6


at the section called "Building and Installing the fst System" on my
Gentoo laptop. Here's wht I'm doing:

flash VST $ tar xvfz fst-1.6.tar.gz
flash VST $ cd fst-1.6
flash fst-1.6 $ mkdir vst
flash fst-1.6 $ cd vst
flash vst $ cp /home/mark/vstsdk/vstsdk2.3/source/common/aeffectx.h .
flash vst $ cp /home/mark/vstsdk/vstsdk2.3/source/common/AEffect.h .
flash vst $ cd ..
flash fst-1.6 $ ./fixheaders 
sed: can't read aeffectx.h: No such file or directory
flash fst-1.6 $ cd vst/
flash vst $ ../fixheaders 
flash vst $ cd ..
flash fst-1.6 $ ./autogen.sh 
flash fst-1.6 $ ./configure
config.status: creating fst/Makefile
config.status: creating fst/include/config.h

Configure finished.  Do 'make' to build the project.

flash fst-1.6 $ make
gcc -c  -I. -Iinclude -I/usr/include/wine/windows/..
-I/usr/include/wine/windows/../.. -I/usr/include/wine/windows -g -O2
-fPIC -I .. -I./vst  -DDLLPATH=\"/usr/lib/wine\"
-DLIBPATH=\"/usr/local/lib\"  -D_REENTRANT -o fstconfig.o fstconfig.c
gcc -o fstconfig fstconfig.o -L. -lfst 
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/mark/data/VST/fst-1.6/fst'
flash fst-1.6 $ su -
root at flash ~ # cd ~mark/data/VST/fst-1.6
root at flash /home/mark/data/VST/fst-1.6 # make install
/bin/sh ./mkinstalldirs /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig
./mkinstalldirs: ./mkinstalldirs: No such file or directory
make: *** [install-pkgconfigDATA] Error 127
root at flash /home/mark/data/VST/fst-1.6 # 

Can anyone tell what I'm doing wrong here? 

There is the one mistake in the instructions on the QuickToot page where
it seems to tell me to run fixheaders from the wrong place, but I
haven't figured out how to get past this.

I was able to build fst-1.5 quite awhile agio but of course have
forgotten the trick.
