failed to find ar on solaris system (ITS#1772)

when i did a configure on my solaris system it failed to find the ar application
that resides in /usr/ccs/bin/ar

Figured it would not find that, but what happend was that it configured
succesfully and left the $(AR) variable blank, so i got an error on line 278 in
include/liblutil/Makefile saying:
Command not found: ru
(ru are the options to ar)
line was something like:
$(AR) ru
so it left the variable blank.

maybe on configure when you find that its solaris you could check /usr/ccs/bin
and /usr/ucb/bin for some of the common tools (that are not common to solaris

Hope this helps!
