hello r development team,

i'm building R 2.3.0 on solaris and when i run the 'make install' i'm
getting a syntax error during the "installing etc ..." which causes the
installation to fail. i get this error whether i use gnu-make of
sun-make, see the error and reasons below.

gmake[1]: Entering directory `/export/medusa/darin/build/R-2.3.0/etc'
installing etc ...
/bin/bash: -c: line 1: syntax error near unexpected token `;'
/bin/bash: -c: line 1: `for f in ; do /opt/csw/bin/ginstall -c -m 644
${f} "/export/home/darin/build/R-2.3.0/cswstage/opt/csw/lib/R/etc"; done'
gmake[1]: *** [install] Error 2
gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/export/medusa/darin/build/R-2.3.0/etc'
gmake: *** [install] Error 1

in etc/Makefile if i comment lines 60-62 make install continues without
incident, here are those lines.

@for f in $(EXPORTFILES); do \
$(INSTALL_DATA) $${f} "$(rhome)/$(subdir)"; \
done

this has changed from R-2.2.1.

diff etc/Makefile ../R-2.2.1/etc/Makefile"

60c52
< @for f in $(EXPORTFILES); do \
---
@for f in $(OBJECTS) $(EXPORTFILES); do \
should i open a bug for this issue? i'm also curious as to if this has
come up on other platforms.
