The Makefile is looking for the "install" program. I don't have access to a system with Solaris 2.7, but my guess is that you want the /usr/ucb/install program. (See "man -s 1B install".)

Add "/usr/ucb" to your PATH environment variable, then rerun "make install". Or edit the Makefile to use "/usr/ucb/install" instead of simply "install".
