Could be a GNU Make-ism.  Maybe Solaris's make doesn't do wildcarding?
(It's been too long since I've been on Solaris and I'm too tired right
now to look it up. ;).

That's correct for the files inside the template subdirs.

Actually, both should be created by the mkinstalldirs script in the
top level source directory.

I'll have to try to find some time to build Mailman on the Solaris box
in the SF compile farm.
