I'm trying to build dovecot from snapshot dovecot-20051215.tar.gz on 
OpenSolaris Nevada build 28.
I have added to the PATH directories for make, gcc and automake/autoconf 
(in BASH):
$ export PATH=/opt/sfw/bin:/usr/ccs/bin:/usr/sfw/bin:$PATH
then executed
$ aclocal
$ libtoolize --force
$ automake --add-missing
$ autoheader
$ autoconf
And then make finished with

Install prefix ...................... : /usr/local
File offsets ........................ : 64bit
I/O loop method ..................... : poll
File change notification method ..... : none
Building with SSL support ........... : yes (OpenSSL)
Building with IPv6 support .......... : yes
Building with pop3 server ........... : yes
Building with mail delivery agent  .. : yes
Building with GSSAPI support ........ : no
Building with user database modules . : static prefetch passwd 
passwd-file checkpassword (modules)
Building with password lookup modules : passwd passwd-file shadow pam 
checkpassword (modules)
But make fails, the first error is:
Making all in quota

The following command caused the error:
set fnord $MAKEFLAGS; amf=$2; \
dot_seen=no; \
target=`echo all-recursive | sed s/-recursive//`; \
list='quota imap-quota trash'; for subdir in $list; do \

done; \
if test "$dot_seen" = "no"; then \
  make  "$target-am" || exit 1; \
fi; test -z "$fail"
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `all-recursive'
Please, help.
