The problem is that the "ar" and "ranlib" programs were not found.
Typically these are located in /usr/ccs/bin on Solaris.

These are part of the SUNWbtool package, though there may also be
a GNU binutils package that contains them as well.  If you install
SUNWbtool you should be able to compile sudo.
