Problem Installing Emacs on Panther

I have trouble installing Emacs on Mac OS X 10.3. I have already looked in the FAQ of Andrew Choi ( but It did not help. Note that I managed to build several times Emacs on Jaguar and Puma in the past. Here are more details :

1) I have installed Panther (build 7B85) and the XCode tools from scratch on my Powerbook 667MHz / 1 Gb RAM
2) I have updated the sources from CVS ("cvs -z9 update -dP emacs")
3) I have made "make distclean", "configure --enable-carbon-app --without-x", "make bootstrap", "sudo make install"

The configure program works fine. The compilation works fine too. But the installation always fails at the same point. Here are the last logs from the "sudo make install" command :

rm -rf /usr/local/share/emacs/21.3.50/leim/CVS /usr/local/share/emacs/21.3.50/leim/*/CVS; \
rm -f /usr/local/share/emacs/21.3.50/leim/.cvsignore /usr/local/share/emacs/21.3.50/leim/*/.cvsignore; \
rm -f /usr/local/share/emacs/21.3.50/leim/\#* /usr/local/share/emacs/21.3.50/leim/*/\#* ; \
rm -f /usr/local/share/emacs/21.3.50/leim/.\#* /usr/local/share/emacs/21.3.50/leim/*/.\#* ; \
rm -f /usr/local/share/emacs/21.3.50/leim/*~ /usr/local/share/emacs/21.3.50/leim/*/*~ ; \
rm -f /usr/local/share/emacs/21.3.50/leim/*.orig /usr/local/share/emacs/21.3.50/leim/*/*.orig ; \
else true; fi
/bin/sh: line 1: [: too many arguments
chmod -R a+r /usr/local/share/emacs/21.3.50/leim
cd lib-src; make maybe-blessmail \
MAKE='make' archlibdir='/usr/local/libexec/emacs/21.3.50/powerpc-apple-darwin7.0.0'
make[1]: Nothing to be done for `maybe-blessmail'.

I have tried several times since last week thinking it was due to a CVS source problem. I have mailed Andrew Choi but he can not reproduce the problem.

I have made no modifications to the system. For information, here are my configuration files (I used this method on Jaguar and it works fine) :
% cat .login
source /usr/share/tcsh/examples/login
% cat .logout
source /usr/share/tcsh/examples/logout
% cat .tcshrc
# Default Initialisation
source /usr/share/tcsh/examples/rc

I have also made no change to the development configuration : the system uses gcc 3.3 by default.

Has anyone any idea of what could cause the problem ?
