What was your working directory when you did the build? You should never build in the install directory - is that what you were doing?
Build in a directory under /usr/src, or even under /tmp. Then you should be OK.

the original directory when i first extracted all the files was ircd-rizon

How do i compile the build into another directory?

Commented:
Simplest is to rename the ircd-rizon directory followed by make a new icd-rizon. Then the install (from the renamed directory) should run file.
