manyfiles test fails on Solaris

gawk 3.1.0 on a Solaris 2.6 system:

gcc 2.95.2

SunOS gulfhawk 5.6 Generic_105181-23 sun4u sparc

While this smells like a system limitation problem I can't 
put my finger on it.  The _same_ tarball/compiler builds 
and tests just fine on my Linux boxen.

My limits are:
gulfhawk:../gawk-3.1.0-1478: ulimit -a
core file size (blocks)     unlimited
data seg size (kbytes)      2097148
file size (blocks)          unlimited
open files                  1024
pipe size (512 bytes)       10
stack size (kbytes)         8192
cpu time (seconds)          unlimited
max user processes          16389
virtual memory (kbytes)     unlimited

Per /etc/system:
set rlim_fd_max=1024

The manyfiles test fails with the following:

gawk: ./manyfiles.awk:1: (FILENAME=_manyfiles FNR=251) fatal: can't redirect
to `junk/251' (Error 0)
make[1]: *** [manyfiles] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/opt1/local/Gnu/Gawk/gawk-3.1.0/test'
make: *** [check-recursive] Error 1

After removing manyfiles from Makefile, All the other tests are 

Configure information attached below.

Any help, pointers or suggestions will be much appreciated.

Thanks for making gawk available!!

Best regards.
