Please do not send questions to R-bugs (especially as well as to R-devel).

The thing you are getting as "" is from (see doc/Makefile)

           $(INSTALL_DATA) $(srcdir)/$${f} "$(rdocdir)"; \

What is rdocdir set to in Makeconf? It (and related quantities) should be

rhome = ${libdir}/R
rsharedir = ${rhome}/share
rincludedir = ${rhome}/include
rdocdir = ${rhome}/doc

unless you set something non-standard during configure. (If you did not, the code is very simple and anything else here would seem to indicate a bug in the shell used, but please debug it.)

Solaris 7 is very old: this does work on Solaris 8 (from where I copied the above). You can always specify it on the make install line (as described in the R-admin manual you were pointed to).
