I don't have this problem on my Solaris 8 (sparc) box.
gzip 1.3.12 builds zgrep and installs it, with the first
line being "#!/bin/bash".

/bin/bash is a standard part of Solaris 8, in the SUNWbash package.
If you don't have /bin/sh installed then the build process should fall
back on /bin/ksh, which is in the core SUNWcsu package (the same
package that has /bin/sh).  Evidently something is going wrong on your
platform, and this process isn't working.

Can you please send address@hidden the exact command that you used
to configure gzip 1.3.12 on your platform, along with its output on a
fresh copy of the distribution?  It might also be helpful to send the
output of the command "sh -x configure".
