I just checked port/solaris/Makefile.set.sun.  It looks like you
must have a patched source.

	'CDEBUG=-g -O2'
	'AR=/usr/ccs/bin/ar cru'
	'YACC=/usr/ccs/bin/yacc -d'
	'SYSLIBS=-ll -lnsl -lsocket'
	'PS=ps -p'

Other bugs include:

 4) tarball unpacks to 'src' instead of 'bind882r5/src'
    and writes a Makefile in the `pwd`

 5) root Makefile doesn't work

    go to the ./src directory, you cannot make "all" here.
    *** Error code 255
    make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `all'
