I got some errors when I attempted to build R (R-2.6.2) on my Solaris 9 box. Can someone please provide some suggestion on what to do next?

The "configure" process was fine expect that I got some warning and a coredump at the end.

What does that affect? Can I still build it?

./configure[64111]: 10817 Segmentation Fault(coredump)

I tried to build it anyway.
When I ran "make", I got an error: "../../../bin/R: bad substitution". What does it mean? Does it look like a file permission problem? What may go wrong here?
