Turns out Sun's make doesn't like the following construct to append to 
variables conditionally:  "target: VARIABLE+=VALUE"  This occurs in 
the test/Makefile in the check target:

check: AM_MAKEFLAGS+=-k -j1

If you take out the AM_MAKEFLAGS+=... bit the Makefile should work 
with Sun's make again at least enough to let you compile the library.
