I was bitten by this recently, too, with another program (emacs). My prb was 
that I had told configure (through $CPP) to use "cc -E" as cpp, which is ANSI 
cpp, and not /usr/ccs/bin/cpp, which is (or so I gather) the K&R cpp. You won't 
believe how muich it screwed up things. GNU stuff needs /usr/ccs/bin/cpp. That 
is probably the issue here too because the only other ar is /usr/xpg4/bin/ar, 
which 1/ almost nobody has in his path anyhow and 2/ accepts the rc flags, too.
