Noticed when installing as non-root:

installing sample datafile ./data/data/sample.dat->/storage1/home/jreed/pkg/libd
chown: /storage1/home/jreed/pkg/libdata/wwwcount/#inst.9159#: Operation not perm
installing rgb.txt->/storage1/home/jreed/pkg/libdata/wwwcount
installing wwwcount->/var/log
touch: /var/log/wwwcount: Permission denied
chmod: /var/log/wwwcount: No such file or directory
chown: nobody.nogroup: Invalid argument

install without any root privilege.
Set these variables to better defaults.
