Most likely you need to use the command

  sudo make install

and you will be prompted to type in the password for "root" (also known as
the "superuser" or "administrator") -- "sudo" stands for "superuser do".
As it is, you probably do not have permission to create the directory
because you are NOT a superuser (administrator, root).  If you do not know
the password then you should get an administrator for your system to help
