I can't seem to reproduce this. What failure messages are you getting?

Hi Patrick.  Thanks for testing.  I investigated a bit further and I
think the problem is that permissions aren't set correctly during make
install.  When you do a make install, other permissions are explicitly
set such as:

/usr/bin/install -c -c -m 644 nmap-service-probes /usr/local/share/nmap/
/usr/bin/install -c -c -m 644 nmap-protocols /usr/local/share/nmap/
changing mode of /usr/local/bin/zenmap to 775

But the NSE stuff is installed like:

/usr/bin/install -c -d /usr/local/share/nmap/scripts
cp -f scripts/script.db scripts/*.nse /usr/local/share/nmap/scripts
/usr/bin/install -c -d /usr/local/share/nmap/nselib
cp -f nselib/*.lua /usr/local/share/nmap/nselib

I think we just need to explicitly set the permissions either during
the copy/install or by doing a chmod afterward.  It should be an easy
fix--I'll do it.
