I've just installed sudo on a sun machine with the binary packages from for a Solaris 8 environment, and when I run 'make' I get the
following error ... As a newbie this might just be a dumb mistake, but I
can't seem to find any info on this  .....

[dare]$ make all
sudo: no passwd entry for compiler!

I've had a go at modifying the sudoers file but as yet have had no luck, do
I need to add 'compiler' as a user in my system ... Weird as it may seem ..

Any help greatly appreciated ... 
Thanks in advance


And FYI I've added the sudoers file and system info below

[dare]$ uname -a
SunOS unknown 5.8 Generic_108528-13 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-60
