I'm upgrading to R 2.2.1 and have bumped into some problems.

I have been successful with installing on x86 and PPC Linux, but am
unable to install R on Solaris 7 and on IRIX 6.5.  Configuration
and compilation go through just fine, but "make install" fails:

gmake[1]: Entering directory `/scratch/atossava/R-2.2.1/doc'
installing doc ...
../tools/install-sh: no destination specified.
../tools/install-sh: no destination specified.
../tools/install-sh: no destination specified.
gmake[1]: *** [install-sources] Error 1
gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/scratch/atossava/R-2.2.1/doc'
gmake: *** [install] Error 1

Running "gmake -n install" reveals this is because:

echo "installing doc ..."
/bin/ksh ../src/scripts/mkinstalldirs ""
/bin/ksh ../src/scripts/mkinstalldirs /afs/bi/v/sun4x_57/apps/stats/R/2.2.1/man/man1
for f in CRAN_mirrors.csv KEYWORDS KEYWORDS.db; do \
  ../tools/install-sh -c -m 644 ./${f} ""; \

Any ideas what might be causing "" to appear as the destination directory?
