Aborting package creation. The makefile includes these ... TARGET = emelfm2 MAN_DIR = $(PREFIX)/share/man/man1 ... install -d $(MAN_DIR) install -m 644 docs/$(TARGET).1 $(MAN_DIR); bzip2 -f $(MAN_DIR)/$(TARGET).1; It might be that checkinstall tries to do its own compression ? Probably the bzip2 command should be dropped, as distro's may prefer other formats.
