problems installing mixmaster 3.0 to solaris 10

hello all,

i'm having problems installing mixmaster 3.0 from this site SourceForge.net: Mixmaster. The file I downloaded is mixmaster-3.0.tar.gz.

Consulting the readme file of the mixmaster 3.0 says that the libraries for the follwing should be installed - OpenSSL, zlib, pcre, ncurses. I installed these successfully.

The first problem I got is when I ran the Install script, I got this:
# ./Install
./Install: whoami: not found
./Install: test: argument expected

I tried changing the top part of the script from:
#!/bin/sh --> to this --> #!/bin/ksh
and eventually it ran up until the middle part. (I'm not sure though if changing this was the right thing)

I got this result when I ran the Install script which I'm trying to resolve until now..

# ./Install
./Install[231]: whoami: not found
./Install[231]: test: argument expected

Remove the old Makefile? [y] y

I've also checked readme about the Installation problems & found these but wasn't able to help me.
################
Installation problems:
---------------------

In case one of the libraries Mixmaster uses is installed incorrectly on your
system, place the library source code (available from the locations listed
above) in the Src directory, remove the old Makefile, run the Install script
again and answer `y' when asked whether to use the source code.

The ncurses library can use termcap and terminfo databases. The Mixmaster
Install script tries to find out whether terminfo is available. If you get a
"Can't open display" error when starting the Mixmaster menu, run "./configure
--enable-termcap; make lib/libncurses.a" in the ncurses directory.

There seem to be problems with compiling stuff but not sure where to start.. hope you can give me insights in resolving these things.

PS. please bear with me if I ask silly questions as I am a novice Unix user.

regards,
lima

Did you run ./configure before "make install"? Did you look into what options you could specify to ./configure?
