The FAQ is incorrect, I think. autogen.sh is only if you are installing 
something extracted from CVS.  You should just be able to do:

make install
(the last needs to be done as root)

Did you extract the tarball as root or as a different user than what you 
are building with?  You ultimately need to be root to install anyway...
