Sun's "make" doesn't support VPATH well.  As mentioned in the
coreutils INSTALL file, you need a version of "make" that supports
VPATH if you want to build from a separate source tree.

Please download and install GNU make, and use that.  If you're using
Solaris 9, /opt/sfw/bin/gmake (in the SFWgmake package) should work.
