[OS X Emacs] Upgrading ESS

Hi, I'm trying to upgrade ESS (http://ess.r-project.org/) to version 5.13
from the version 5.3.6 that seems to be included in Aquamacs.
I found some snafus though. I changed the ESS distribution's
'Makeconf' file to look like this:
DESTDIR="/Library/Application Support/Aquamacs Emacs"
And a simple 'make install' doesn't work - it complains about
missing 'ess.dvi' files, and has "permission-denied" trouble writing
files in LISPDIR.
What I've found that works is to do the following sequence:
cd doc; make; cd ..
rm -rf /Library/Application\ Support/Aquamacs\ Emacs/*
Obviously, be careful with the 'rm -rf' step! I didn't have anything
else in that directory so I didn't mind wiping it out a few times
over & over.
Hopes this helps someone else.
