I'm trying to install gmp 4.3.2 but when I run 'make install' I get the
error messages below.  I've tried changing the permissions on /usr/local/
but it doesn't work (permission denied errors).  Any suggestions on what to

test -z "/usr/local/share/info" || mkdir -p -- . "/usr/local/share/info"
mkdir: cannot create directory `/usr/local/share/info': Permission denied
make[3]: *** [install-info-am] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/vanessa/gmp-4.3.2/doc'
