I love answering my own posts :-)

So, I have it compiled. The "trick" here is to make sure that you have
the entire GNU toolchain installed. This specifically means:

+ bison .. oh, and don't forget to touch src/dsql/parser.y
+ ld .. yeah, from the binutils collection. The standard Sun ld
in /usr/ccs/bin will not accept the arguments that make throws at it.
Be nice to have that as part of the configure script.

Now, how do we go about installing this sucker? 'make install' doesn't
seem to work ...

(root@locke) 0:33 $ make install
make -C src install
make[1]: Entering directory
make -f ../gen/Makefile.install install
make[2]: Entering directory
make[2]: Nothing to be done for `install'.

Maybe it is in the docs. Tomorrow.
