Thanks! I scoured the system for evidence of the file being used without finding it in use anywhere. The output from the fuser command did not show anyone using the file either (which I didn't expect as I am the only person on this server). What DID work is renaming the file in question using the mv command and then running the make install step. Not sure how risky this particular move is but it did get me past the obstruction this was causing.
