The configure script should have discovered that the ranlib utility
isn't on your system and set the RANLIB macro to ":".  Apparently, it
didn't (possibly because you have the environment variable RANLIB set to

Try the following:

    1.  Go to the top-level source directory.

    2.  Perform steps 3 through 5 near the end of the INSTALL file.

    3.  Ensure that the environment variable RANLIB is set to ":" (minus
