Problem installing gcc 3.4.2 on Solaris 9

I've downloaded the full sources for gcc and unpacked them somewhere into my
home directory.  This results in a subdirectory of my home directory called
gcc-3.4.2.  I then did the following:

mkdir objdir
cd objdir
/home/mcfall/dept/sysadmin/gcc-3.4.2/configure --prefix=/opt/gnu2
--with-local-prefix=/opt/gnu2 --enable-threads=solaris
--enable-version-specific-runtime-libs --enable-languages=c,c++,f77
make bootstrap
make install

Without specifying the full path to configure, I got problems running make
install, complaining about install-sh not being found in a relative path
name.  I found the suggestion to use a full path name on another post.

This series of commands worked without make returning any errors that I
could see.  However, there is nothing in the /opt/gnu2/include directory,
and this makes compiling anything useful obviously difficult.

Did I miss something here?  I've looked through all the installation docs
and I don't see anything that I should have done differently or
