[The R-core team is in meetings in Vienna, so the response rate is not
going to be great this week]

It's certainly doable:

> version
platform sparc-sun-solaris2.9
arch     sparc
os       solaris2.9
system   sparc, solaris2.9
major    1
minor    6.2
year     2003
month    01
day      10
language R

It's been a while since I built that, but that's pretty much a vanilla
system with the Solaris 9 freeware installed. 

Your configure output suggests that you hav a system installation
problem and some include files has gone AWOL. Check the config.log for
hints about what might be missing.
