OK...turns out that we were probably compiling Amber on our Solaris systems
using GNU make, not Sun's make (which is in /usr/ccs/bin). If you can,
install GNU make (sometimes called "gmake") on your system.

If you can't do that, you will have to edit your Makefiles to change lines like:

    $(AR)sys.a sys.o wallclock.o


    $(AR) sys.a sys.o wallclock.o

...thanks for the report....dac
