Metamail for Solaris 10

Hi All,

We are trying to Load Metamail on our Solaris 10 Server but are not able to.

This is what we get:
m5k604d1@root# pwd

m5k604d1@root# /usr/ccs/bin/make
(cd metamail ; make CONFIGDIR=../. CFLAGS="-g -I. " CC="cc" LDLIBS="")
sh: make: not found
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `basics'

We have tried following to install the metamail software.

The source code available its self is throwing errors when it is being compiled. The steps we tried to trouble shoot this are given here.

1) PATH and LIBRARY_PATH variables were set accordingly.

2) The newest gcc version available was installed . Tried to compile with that. No luck.

3) Latest egcs version was installed and tried to compile . Didn't succeed.

4)All required library packages where installed as per the error logs which was thrown. Made necessary modifications to Makefile to include the new gcc

compiler and environment variables. Still not luck.

5) Tested with and without the gcc compiler.

Please Help!!!

The problem is, that make is called recursively, but the directory where make lives is not in the path
