I have this machine, which doesn't have installed "make" utility, and I need it in order to install other utilities, have you folks done this before on a Solaris 10 machine?

This is the output I got with "uname -a" command: SunOS qsunx02 5.10 Generic_141445-09 i86pc i386 i86pc.

There are some information out there, but I couldn't find any useful post.

Actually I just found out that Solaris 10 comes with that tool "installed", but not added on the Path, adding the dir to the path did the trick for me:

Hopefully this saves somebody's time.
