We have recently upgraded to Solaris 10 on a couple of sparc machines with the usual
mildly mysterious consequences for library locations, etc, etc. I've managed to configure
R 2.1.0 for a 64 bit version with:

R is now configured for sparc-sun-solaris2.10

   Source directory: .
   Installation directory: /usr/local

   C compiler:                gcc -m64 -g -O2
   C++ compiler:              g++  -m64 -fPIC
   Fortran compiler:          g77  -m64 -g -O2

   Interfaces supported:      X11
   External libraries:        readline
   Additional capabilities:   PNG, JPEG, MBCS, NLS
   Options enabled:           R profiling

   Recommended packages:      yes

configure:47559: WARNING: you cannot build info or html versions of the R manuals

and make and make check seem to run smoothly, however "make install" dies with
the following messages:

ysidro.econ.uiuc.edu# make install

*** Error code 255
The following command caused the error:
false --html --no-split --no-headers ./resources.texi -o ../html/ resources.html
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `../html/resources.html' Current working directory /usr/local/encap/R-2.1.0/doc/manual

The following command caused the error:

make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `install' Current working directory /usr/local/encap/R-2.1.0/doc/html *** Error code 1
The following command caused the error:

make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `install' Current working directory /usr/local/encap/R-2.1.0/doc *** Error code 1
The following command caused the error:
for d in m4 tools doc etc share src po tests; do \

   (cd ${d} && make install) || exit 1; \ done
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `install'

and running R from the bin directory gives:

> capabilities()

     jpeg      png    tcltk      X11 http/ftp  sockets   libxml     fifo
    FALSE    FALSE    FALSE    FALSE     TRUE     TRUE     TRUE     TRUE
   cledit  IEEE754    iconv
     TRUE     TRUE    FALSE

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. With solaris 9 we had a 64 bit build
but never encounter such problems, and I don't see anything in the archives or the
install manual that is relevant -- but of course, I'm not very clear about what I'm looking
for either.
