SUMMARY - Problems installing openssl 0.9.7d - help please

Thanks to Beth Dodge, Bob Payne and Paul Roetman for getting help to me so 
quickly: Paul's solution was the first I tried and worked just fine - should 
have guessed it myself, of course:

"There is a link where the file should go

try this:

ls -l /usr/local/ssl/man/man3/EVP_BytesToKey.3
rm -f /usr/local/ssl/man/man3/EVP_BytesToKey.3
make install"

This worked perfectly.

Original query was:

Trying to install openssl-0.9.7d.  All configs, makes, and makes test
OK, but 
I run into problems with make install:

installing man3/ERR_put_error.3
ERR_add_error_data.3 => ERR_put_error.3
installing man3/ERR_remove_state.3
installing man3/EVP_BytesToKey.3
sh: /usr/local/ssl/man/man3/EVP_BytesToKey.3: cannot create
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `install_docs'

Though I have not changed them, I wonder if it is a permissions problem:

root@server:~/openssl-0.9.7d$ ls -ald /usr/local/ssl/man/man3
drwxr-xr-x   2 root     other      27136 Mar 23 09:13

I try to create a test file in case, and succeed:

root@server:~/openssl-0.9.7d$ touch /usr/local/ssl/man/man3/mytest
root@server:~/openssl-0.9.7d$ ls -l /usr/local/ssl/man/man3/mytest
-rw-r--r--   1 root     other          0 Mar 23 09:14

I try to create a file of the same name as that which make install is 
attempting to create:

root@server:~/openssl-0.9.7d$ touch
touch: /usr/local/ssl/man/man3/EVP_BytesToKey.3 cannot stat

The disk is not full, etc. - anyone tell me what's wrong / what I'm
wrong?  Installed several previous openssl versions without problems
same method - or is it another kind of problem altogether?
