The 'false' command is expanded from the $(AR) variable. If $(AR) expands
to 'false' instead of 'ar', it indicates that the 'ar' program was not found
at configuration time. Build tools like 'ar' and 'ld' are on Solaris usually
installed in /usr/ccs/bin/, so that all you need is to add /usr/ccs/bin to
your PATH variable (at the beginning of PATH, or - if you prefer GNU 'make' to
Solaris 'make' - right after the directory that contains GNU make) and
start again configuring in a freshly unpacked libiconv-1.12 directory.
