Manual install?

Hello All -

I am trying to install sudo on a minimal install of Solaris 7.  I added Gnu make, but the install fails with:
./install-sh:  strip:  not found
make:  *** [install-binaries]  Error 1

And yes, the strip binary is not part of the install image...

I can understand the steps from the "Makefile", but I don't understand all the steps (or their necessity) in the install-sh file.  I would like to be able to just manually create the subdirs, adjust the permissions, and not have to fix the execution of the "make" install process.

I've checked, and scanned the list archives.  Anybody have a step-by-step equivalent to the "make install"??
