Hi folks, I'm having a problem with installing R on Solaris. Has anyone seen a similar issue? I don't find any hits on the search engines. Thanks.

Environment:
SunOS xxxx 5.10 Generic_118822-25 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-280R

During the installation/compilation of R-2.10.1 I get the following error:

begin installing recommended package boot ERROR: cannot extract package from 'boot.tgz' *** Error code 1
The following command caused the error:
MAKE="make" R_LIBS= ../../../bin/R CMD INSTALL --no-lock -l "../../../library" boot.tgz > boot.ts.out 2>&1 || (cat boot.ts.out && exit 1) make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `boot.ts' Current working directory /home/ireview/R-2.10.1/src/library/Recommended *** Error code 1
The following command caused the error:
make stamp-recommended
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `recommended-packages' Current working directory /home/ireview/R-2.10.1/src/library/Recommended *** Error code 1
The following command caused the error:
(cd src/library/Recommended && make)
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `stamp-recommended'
