Problems installing Mysql on a Solaris Box

I am in the process of installing mysql 3.23.53 on a Solaris 8 box.  When I run configure it goes through quite a bit of line action but suddenly stops at the following error:
config.status: error: cannot find input file: readline/Makefile.in

My path is the following:
.:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/ccs/bin

I have installed make-3.80-sol8-sparc-local and I see Makefile.in in the directory so I don't understand if this is a different file.  Any assistance on this would be much appreciated.

Why not just install the Solaris 8 MySQL 3.23.53 package from http://sunfreeware.com/
