That's a new one... One should think that we'd seen all Solaris
problems by now, but no. My best guess is that something in the
makefile is catching the wrong script along your $PATH. Deja.com gives
only two matches on "RSI directory" and both have to do with IDL, does
that ring a bell?

You may want to try compiling as an ordinary user and only do the
final "make install" as root.
