Thank you for your responses. It turns out the problem was my version of 'tar' on solaris. I downloaded the latest Gnu tar and the install completed successfully. Who would of know ;)

Thanks again,
Alex

Did you run

$RHOME/src/tools/rsync-recommended

to obtain the most recent versions of the recommended packages before trying to compile them?
