Which installer did you download?  Assuming it's the correct one, you
probably need to cd into the installer directory so you can run "./install".
 I'm not certain that this is the problem, but it's the first thing to try.
 Also, you appear to be trying to install from a non-root account into
/usr/local, which you probably don't have write permissions for.  You should
either run "sudo ./install", or add the "--prefix=" option to install into a
directory you control (e.g. "./install --prefix=$HOME/software").

The next version will have additional disk-image based installers for Mac,
which will allow you to avoid the command line entirely.  (The current
installation mechanism will still be possible, of course.)
