Solaris numbers went 2.5, 2.5.1, 2.6, 2.7 aka 7, 8, 9. The underlying OS
is SunOS with version numbers like 5.3...5.6, 5.7, .... Try uname -a:
markov% uname -a
SunOS markov.stats 5.7 Generic_106541-14 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-4
I don't recall a 5.3.1, but it would be very old.

It's standard on Solaris. There is a Perl install-time option to link to
/usr/bin/perl, I think (and /bin is linked to /usr/bin).
It seems that when R was installed, /bin/perl was found in the path.
Is it possible that the path has been changed or Perl re-installed?
If so the simplest thing is to re-install R, as this is encoded in lots
