This sounds familiar to something I worked around back with OpenLDAP 1.0 (also
on Solaris 2.5.1);  I *think* it had something to do with the "wierd" (from
Solaris' perspective) Makefiles setting variables with "?=" (or whatever) 
instead of "=".  I also recall some variables (DIRs/PATHs) not being set at
all (names like LDAP_BINDIR used in the top-level Makefile instead of BINDIR
as required by the lower-level Makefiles, or somesuch).

Sorry to be so vague - hope it's enough to point you in the right direction
