First, 8.2.2p5 is ancient and full of bugs that have been fixed. I can
only assume that you're trying to save either the cost or the time of
downloading the source from the ISC, but this is a false economy.

Second, it looks like what you're using is the source that's distributed
in /usr/src/contrib (or whatever it was in 2.2.2; that's so old even I
can't remember it...). This is *not* "ISC's original source", it's the
FreeBSD project's customized version. In particular, you'll note that
the port/ subdirectory only contains the directories necessary to build
bind on a FreeBSD system. You're trying to build on a Solaris system,
which is not possible given the hobbled source you're using.

Yes. Obtain a complete source distribution, and compile that instead of
what you're using.
