[Rd] R-devel on Solaris 8

I'm having difficulty building R-devel on Solaris 8 (current version),
while trying to update from my previous version of R-devel (2003-09-02).

When building I get this error:
make[4]: Leaving directory
make[4]: Entering directory
dumping R code in package 'methods'
Saving namespace image ... 
initializing class and method definitions now ...done
<environment: namespace:methods>

/bin/bash: ../../../tools/install-sh: No such file or directory
make[4]: *** [../../../library/methods/R/all.rda] Error 127
make[4]: Leaving directory
make[3]: *** [all] Error 2
make[3]: Leaving directory
make[2]: *** [R] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/misc/homes/madman/R-devel/src/library'
make[1]: *** [R] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/misc/homes/madman/R-devel/src'
make: *** [R] Error 1


At first I thought perhaps a 'make clean' was in order, but it still
persisted.  Then I tired a 'make distclean', and finally just doing a
rsync to a completely new directory target and trying it there.  The same
error keeps coming up.

GCC is version 3.2

I have built the same R-devel on linux (RH 7.2) wiht gcc 2.96

Not sure if this is something particular to my setup or a problem in R,
but hopefully someone out there has some insight.
