Yes, I installed it.

My output looks like this: 

#/usr/bin/file /bin/ls
/bin/ls: symbolic link to ../usr/dist/fileutils-4.0/bin/ls

That`s because I like to know where all the files come from, 
so I install everything in the directory /usr/dist/<programname>/
and afterwards link the directory structure to /usr.

I think that`s why I get the error messages.
