try:
ifeq 'SunOS' '$(_INIT_UTS_SYSNAME)'
   K=SOLARIS
endif  

or

ifeq ($(_INIT_UTS_SYSNAME), SunOS)
   K=SOLARIS
endif

which version of Solaris are you running? please post the output of:
uname -a
Have you applied the latest Solaris patches to your box?

BTW, Solaris doesn't ship with a working C complier, you can not expect to use
/usr/ucb/bin/cc
/usr/ccs/bin/make
to make it work.

But you can download the GNU gcc, make etc from the following site and try again:
http://sunfreeware.com/

please download gcc +make+  zlib +_ libgcc + glib + openssl + libtool + libiconv
+autoconf + automake + flex + boson from the about site.

and set PATH LD_LIBRARY_PATH to used them, eg:
PATH=/usr/local/bin:$PATH  #to make sure that you are using the GNU tools
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}:/usr/local/lib
export PATH LD_LIBRARY_PATH

then run make

PS: I used the GNU tools to complied things, no problem.

Good luck!

Hi Thilak,

     Your patch level is very low, consider to apply the latest patch to your Sun blade 1000.

     Also download the GUN tools and use gcc  to complie your program.
