It's a very simple-minded install set of commands.
That message just means that /usr/local/share/man/man1/
does not exist. Which is not really a big surprise, but is a situation
that the script does not deal with.
You could choose to ignore the problem (you don't really need to install
the man page)
or you could create the directory '/usr/local/share/man/man1/' .
Even if you do install dwarfdump.1 it might not be visible ('man
dwarfdump' won't work)
unless you create/modify your MANPATH environment variable (try 'man
manpath' for more info).
Another annoyance with the built-in install is that
cp ./dwarfdump.1 /usr/local/share/man/man1/dwarfdump.1
may leave dwarfdump.1 as 'not readable' and you may have to do
sudo chmod o+r /usr/local/share/man/man1/dwarfdump.1
I'd better do something about this for a future release...
