Program permission (to install etc)

hi! all
i've setup my PC with FreeBSD 6.2 and i've created login ID for my friends
i would like to allow them to install program (since they're requesting to use bnc/psybnc) using their shell

however, they have encounter such error to install the program
Quote:
$ make menuconfig
Initializing Menu-Configuration[*] Running Conversion Tool for older psyBNC Data.
gcc:Permission denied
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/home/test/psybnc.
they have to sudo in order to run "make"

how is this possible for me to allow them to run the program by themself without assigning them to be in sudo group?

thanks all...

DH_AUTO_INSTALL(1)						     Debhelper							DH_AUTO_INSTALL(1)

NAME
       dh_auto_install - automatically runs make install or similar

SYNOPSIS
       dh_auto_install [buildsystemoptions] [debhelperoptions] [--params]

DESCRIPTION
       dh_auto_install is a debhelper program that tries to automatically install built files. It does so by running the appropriate command for
       the build system it detects the package uses. For example, if there's a Makefile and it contains a install target, then this is done by
       running make (or MAKE, if the environment variable is set). If there is a setup.py or Build.PL, it is used. Note that the Ant build system
       does not support installation, so dh_auto_install will not install files built using Ant.

       Unless --destdir option is specified, the files are installed into debian/package/ if there is only one binary package. In the multiple
       binary package case, the files are instead installed into debian/tmp/, and should be moved from there to the appropriate package build
       directory using dh_install(1).

       DESTDIR is used to tell make where to install the files.  If the Makefile was generated by MakeMaker from a Makefile.PL, it will
       automatically set PREFIX=/usr too, since such Makefiles need that.

       This is intended to work for about 90% of packages. If it doesn't work, or tries to use the wrong install target, you're encouraged to skip
       using dh_auto_install at all, and just run make install manually.

OPTIONS
       See "BUILD SYSTEM OPTIONS" in debhelper(7) for a list of common build system selection and control options.

       --destdir=directory
	   Install files into the specified directory. If this option is not specified, destination directory is determined automatically as
	   described in the "DESCRIPTION" section.

       -- params
	   Pass params to the program that is run, after the parameters that dh_auto_install usually passes.

SEE ALSO
       debhelper(7)

       This program is a part of debhelper.
