[Proj] Problems with configure/makefiles

I am running into a problem building Proj 4.4.8 on Solaris 2.8.  It is
configured with the following, but I don't think this has any bearing on
the problem:

./configure --prefix="${BUILD_DIR}" --datadir=/usr/local/cubewerx/share \
            --enable-shared=no --with-pic --disable-libtool-lock

The 'make install' problem is:

Making install in src
make[1]: Entering directory `/mnt/dev/home/cw/third_party/proj-4.4.8/src'
make[2]: Entering directory `/mnt/dev/home/cw/third_party/proj-4.4.8/src'
/bin/bash ../mkinstalldirs /cw/third_party/builds/solaris_28_sparc/lib
 /bin/bash ../libtool --mode=install /usr/bin/install -c  libproj.la /cw/third_party/builds/solaris_28_sparc/lib/libproj.la
/usr/bin/install -c .libs/libproj.lai /cw/third_party/builds/solaris_28_sparc/lib/libproj.la

make[2]: *** [install-libLTLIBRARIES] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/mnt/dev/home/cw/third_party/proj-4.4.8/src'
make[1]: *** [install-am] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/mnt/dev/home/cw/third_party/proj-4.4.8/src'
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1

It looks like the Solaris version of the 'install' program has its
arguments backwards from the GNU version of the program.  Ought not the
configure program to do something to compensate for this?
