you have likely an infinite softlink in /usr/local. Please verify that  
your /usr/local and /usr/local/lib is in order. If the error still  
persists, please send us the installer log from the failed installation.


PS: Please don't set high-priority flags on your emails, it's  
superfluous and considered rude by some.
