Let me guess: You are trying to build apache 2.2.9 on a Solaris 2.x box?
The above error appears upon "make install", right?

If so, Solaris 2.x provides some horribly old bash which does not
understand some syntax used here. I ran into a similar problem a few
weeks ago and installed/linked a newer bash version (version 3.x)
in /bin/bash (was bash 2.x) which fixed the problem. With bash 3.2.x
"make install" worked as expected.

Maybe you should give it a try :-)
