      Description

      When I pull the latest build from git, everything proceeds according to the instructions at https://guacamole.apache.org/doc/gug/installing-guacamole.html until I get to the 'make install' phase. If I run 'make install' without sudo, I get the following errors:

      Making install in src/libguac
      make[1]: Entering directory '/home/sydbarrett74/guacamole-server/src/libguac'
      make[2]: Entering directory '/home/sydbarrett74/guacamole-server/src/libguac'
      {{ /bin/mkdir -p '/usr/local/lib'}}
      {{ /bin/bash ../../libtool --mode=install /usr/bin/install -c libguac.la '/usr/local/lib'}}
      libtool: install: /usr/bin/install -c .libs/libguac.so.12.3.0 /usr/local/lib/libguac.so.12.3.0
      /usr/bin/install: cannot create regular file '/usr/local/lib/libguac.so.12.3.0': Permission denied

      Running 'make install' with sudo allows the process to complete successfully.
