Summary: invalid test in "sudo make install-doc"?

Initial Comment:
While running "sudo make install-doc" on Mac OS X 10.4.7, I got a nastygram about '.' not being readable.  I was able to get around this by opening up the permissions on the current directory (it was mode 750; I made it 755), but I can't see why this should matter.

My suspicion is that the code is trying to make sure that the installation directory is readable, but that's not what is being checked.
