- Installing OpenSSH on Solaris 8 - Issues

This week, I have been deploying SSH installations to a great many UNIX
machines of different flavours. When I got to the Solaris 8 machines in
my group, however, I had issues with several of the boxes.
A total of two of my machiens didn't take the software for one reason
or another. The two had the same issue.
Here is my environment information:
*machine1-/tmp/openssh-3.9p1: uname -a
SunOS machine1 5.8 Generic_108528-21 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-4
*machine2-/tmp/openssh-3.9p1: uname -a
SunOS machine2 5.8 Generic_108528-29 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-5_10
Here is a synopsis of my installation procedure:
1) Install OpenSSL, a prerequisite of OpenSSH, from the file:
To do this, I execute the following commands in the directory created
when that file is unzipped and untared:
All succeeded without a hitch.
2) Install OpenSSH, from the file:
And following a similar process as above, I execute the following
However, the make install doesn't take, and spits out the following
message on two different machines:
*machine1-/tmp/openssh-3.9p1: make install
(cd openbsd-compat && make)
(cd scard && make DESTDIR= install)
/m01/SOFTWARE/Sol_2.5.1_Install -m 0644 ./Ssh.bin
sh: /m01/SOFTWARE/Sol_2.5.1_Install: not found
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `install'
Current working directory /tmp/openssh-3.9p1/scard
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target
I have searched on Google, but have come up with nothing good at all. I
tried running the uninstall script, and then re-executing the configure
and make, but the make install still bombs out.
If anyone has any ideas at all, please let me know.
I have no idea what the deal is, and I really wanted to get these two
installs done by the end of the day.
Thank you in advance.
Re: Installing OpenSSH on Solaris 8 - Issues
Yikes!:-) You must have some environment variable set to that weird
thing, making configure think that you want to use it as install command
printenv | grep INSTALL
(I think the literal $INSTALL is the only thing that could cause the
above in the case of OpenSSH.)
