When I do 'make DESTDIR=/path/to/wherever install'
errors occour:

make: Nothing to be done for `all'.
install -d /usr/bin
install -d /usr/share/doc/gwc
install: cannot create directory `/usr/share/doc/gwc':
Permission denied
make: *** [install] Error 1
==> ERROR: Build Failed. Aborting...

Seems like DESTDIR is forgotten somewhere.
Tried prefix=/path to be it came out with more errors.

This is for 0.20-10b (btw.. any change for a x.y.z like
version number?)
