I have some problems compiling this (on solaris), which I think were present in R6B
too. The configure scripts seem to detect the wrong version of perl,
and also of install. The version of perl I want to use is first in my
PATH, but configure always takes /usr/local/bin/perl. This perl
doesn't have all modules needed, and so the compilation fails with:

 /usr/local/bin/perl utils/beam_makeops -outdir sparc-sun-solaris2.7 -emulator \
         /home/bjowi/otp_src_R7A-0/lib/compiler/src/genop.tab beam/ops.tab
 Can't locate vars.pm in @INC at utils/beam_makeops line 21.
 BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at utils/beam_makeops line 21.

Also, /usr/ucb/install is used instead of the nice GNU install I
have. In the configure scripts, it seems that /usr/ucb/install is
always chosen on solaris.
