that's definitely the problem - install-sh should be executable!
"install-sh" is part of the configure stuff, and is only used if
GNU install (ginstall) or a BSD-compatible install. The configure
script says that SunOS's /usr/etc/install is broken or buggy.
But still, it looks like something wrong in our packaging.
Try making it executable with chmod +x install-sh and try
your "gmake install" again.
