[plt-scheme] Problem building and running on Solaris 10

When I build plt-4.2.4 on a Solaris 10 x86 machine, I use the
--disable-foreign flag for the configure script.

However, when I do the "make install", I get many instances of the following

 /usr/local/plt-4.2.4/lib/plt/collects/scheme/foreign.ss:86:17: compile:
unbound identifier in module in: _int8

And I get a similar error when we run drscheme after the build completes:

 /usr/local/plt-4.2.4/lib/plt/collects/scheme/foreign.ss:86:17: compile:
 unbound identifier in module in: _int8

 === context ===
 /usr/local/plt-4.2.4/lib/plt/collects/scheme/private/map.ss:45:11: for-each
 /usr/local/plt-4.2.4/lib/plt/collects/drscheme/tool-lib.ss: [running body]
 [running body]
 /usr/local/plt-4.2.4/lib/plt/collects/drscheme/drscheme.ss: [running body]

I searched the archives, and found a message where someone posted that the
make install errors shouldn't matter, but since we can't run drscheme, I
think it must mean something.

Does anyone have any idea how to solve this?
