The problem was my referencing of the compiler (it was wrong). Roger
pointed out that if I was using gcc instead of cc I needed to specify that
correctly. All it took was the following:

in sh: CC=gcc make sunos5
     CC=gcc;export CC
     make sunos5

in csh: setenv CC gcc
     make sunos5

The reason I had a 5 page error file is because I tried to change the
reference inside the makefile.

Hello All,

Does anyone know where I can get a copy of tcp wrappers v.7.5? The blurb
file for v7.6 says that it is just an upgrade to the 7.5 source code.

If 7.6 is actually a full installation in it's own right then I got 5 pages
of errors when I tried to do a make. If anyone can help I have the error
file and can send it to you ( I didn't want to send a 5 page attachement to
the entire list). I am not a programmer and have only a basic
understanding of makefiles so forgive me if I missed something obvious. I
did set the path for the tcp daemons in the Makefile to /usr/sbin.
