Hmmm. The INSTALL program is responsible for setting the modes. Are
you using an old config.cache? otherwise configure is probably getting
it wrong. Solaris has this stuff in Makeconf:

INSTALL = $(top_srcdir)/aux/install-sh -c

if you have something else, you might want to try enforcing the above.

That "make" continues past errors and still creates stamp-xxx is an
annoying, but well-known misfeature. Partly my fault for telling Kurt
to leave it alone in the period up to the release (but otherwise
things might have gone *really* wrong!).

I'll cc this to r-devel, in case there's another HP-UXer out there
who's been trying this. In particular, I have absolutely no bearing on
your .so/.sl problem below (unless that's also caused by INSTALL..).
