I’ve had this problem before and it’s pretty easy to fix. Find the file restorecon,

find / -name restorecon

Edit the make file to use the full path to restorecon.


Add the directory which contains restorecon to your system path.

On CentOS ( possibly Fedora as well ) the location of this file is not in the system path of the root user. So when you run make install you get this error.
