I am trying to install samtools-1.4.1 from on Mac OS X El Capitan 10.11.6.

I can run ./configure and make without any errors, but make install results in the following error:

mkdir -p -m 755 /usr/local/bin /usr/local/bin /usr/local/share/man/man1
install: /usr/local/bin/samtools
No such file or directory
make: *** [install] Error 71

I ran sudo make install to get around this, and this proceeds without any error messages, but it results in the following programs in the bin folder:

ace2sam* maq2sam-long* plot-bamstats**** maq2sam-short**** md5fa**** md5sum-lite* samtools* wgsim*****

To me this seems to be an incomplete list of programs, for example, faidx is missing.

Can anybody help on this?

faidx is an option for the samtools program. If you run ./samtools (from the directory above) on its own, you should get all possible program options.
