MySQL installation on FreeBSD problem

Hi there, I've been trying to install MySQL5.1 on my FreeBSD 8-Release server.

I got the latest source from MySQL's website and downloaded+extracted it to "/usr/local/mysql". I ran "make -j2" which ran fine however when I try to execute "make install" I receive this error:

Making install in include
make  install-am
test -z "/usr/local/mysql/include/mysql" || .././install-sh -c -d "/usr/local/mysql/include/mysql"
 /usr/bin/install -c -m 644 'mysql.h' '/usr/local/mysql/include/mysql/mysql.h'
 /usr/bin/install -c -m 644 'mysql_com.h' '/usr/local/mysql/include/mysql/mysql_com.h'
 /usr/bin/install -c -m 644 'mysql_time.h' '/usr/local/mysql/include/mysql/mysql_time.h'

 /usr/bin/install -c -m 644 'mysql/plugin.h' '/usr/local/mysql/include/mysql/plugin.h'
install: mysql/plugin.h and /usr/local/mysql/include/mysql/plugin.h are the same file

maybe you can try this:
- put the source in another directory, say, /usr/src/mysql
- remove everything in /usr/local/mysql
- then run the installation again from /usr/src/mysql
