%% Regarding make error...can not create "ar" ; you wrote:

  rd> # make ar
  rd> /opt/SUNWspro/bin/cc -g    ar.c   -o ar

You can't make it because ar is a system utility (the library archive
creator, the thing that creates libXXX.a files).  It is not a part of
GNU make.

  rd> make[2]: ar: Command not found

This means that make can't find the ar program, which you must make
available to build GNU make.

On Solaris, these tools are kept in the strange and unusual
/usr/ccs/bin, so make sure that directory is in your $PATH variable.
