Thanks a million Frank. That did trick. I found that ar is actually located at /usr/xpg4/bin (Have no idea what that dir is though :P)

I'm not sure why it is happening, but it seems that configure selected "false"
as the "ar" command on your system.  It looks like predefining the AR environment variable may operate as a clue to configure about what archive command to use.  Try:

export AR=/bin/ar

and check what "ac_ct_AR" is set to in src/Makefile.

It might also be a problem with libtool since I presume libtool is actually intercepting in the ar command.

Good luck,
