Indeed, it does so on both my Ubuntu and Win XP boxes. The problem is that the DESCRIPTION file does not have a proper "Maintainer" line. If you simply add the line:

Maintainer: no-one <>

and follow the "regular" procedures, it should install. However, I am not so sure that this is the right thing to do with regards to permissions etc. Anyone any advice?
