[Mailman-Users] Recovering from Server Fail, was FW: Make Install Fails

I've continued to fiddle with this and now have different errors, so I thought I would back up and give ya'll the big picture in case I'm approaching this from the wrong direction.  Tuesday morning I had a hardware failure on my old Solaris 10 box.  In 25 years in the business, I don't think I've seen a hardware failure as thorough as this that didn't involve smoke.  The machine is utterly unrecoverable. 

So to get back into service, I decided to  move the service to a different box.  It's also a Solaris box, but is a Sun X4100.  I have restored the directory tree from tape, but presume that the executables can't be run on the new platform.  

What is the quickest way to get mailman back in service?

Subject: [Mailman-Users] Make Install Fails

I'm attempting to install Mailman on a Solaris 10 box and I am unable to get past "make install."

Sorry - not a unix guy, please use small words and explicit direction.

Attached is the results of make install:
