Not knowing what your applications are like, it's a bit difficult to
comment on, though.

Shouldn't be a big problem on Solaris.

The line for compiling dataentry.c is

        $(CC) $(CFLAGS) $(X_CFLAGS) $(CPPFLAGS) -c $<

and you don't seem to be picking up the  $(X_CFLAGS). These come from
the Makeconf file created by configure. Did you by any chance forget
to remove config.cache before running configure?

[for a pure Rweb application, you probably wouldn't need X at all, but
the --without-x switch doesn't actually work, I suspect]
