I'm working on a new port, and I'm getting this error during make install:

test -z "/usr/local/bin" || .././install-sh -c -d "/usr/local/bin"
.././install-sh: Permission denied

Can anyone tell me why I'm getting this?

My system is 7.2 STABLE
7.2-STABLE FreeBSD 7.2-STABLE #13: Thu Sep 24 09:02:53 CDT 2009

Ports are csuped daily.
