I'm thinking maybe you are trying to install an RPM or DEB package
instead of building from source.  "make install" is a step in the source
build process, but it's not used if you are installing a prebuilt
package.  Instead, see the docs for whatever package management system
you're using.  With RPMs, for instance, you'd do something like
	sudo rpm -i postgresql-*.rpm
