  Something installed a file to 'sbin' before the directory was created.
 So the file was install as 'sbin', rather than inside of the 'sbin'

  I don't see how this can happen... the top-level Makefile creates
$(sbindir) before dong ANYTHING else.  i.e. before trying to install
"".  Are you sure you're doing "make install" from the *top*,
and not a sub-directory?
