Many of your errors are because the makefile hardcodes /usr/local as the path instead of just /usr. Also, there are some obvious ones like no copyright file, among other things. Check for the tags you're getting, then try to fix them.

If you really want to do it the right way, dump checkinstall and do it the Debian way--create a /debian folder and use the Debian packaging system.
