I think it can be a GNUism (ie, expecting /bin/sh to be bash, and not a 
dumb Bourne shell).
I've often had similar problem, because the 'test' command included in 
GNU bash (and needed by configure) is quite different from 
/usr/bin/test, which is the default on solaris.

A quick workaround, since you probably have bash installed on that 
version of Solaris, could be to simply run 'bash ./configure' to 
override the script's shell.

Hope this helps,
