Well I finally solved it. Most people thought the system was getting
mixed up between /usr/bin/sum and /usr/ucb/sum (I also have the gnu sum
installed). However the script carefully sets the PATH to /usr/bin, and
if that wasn't enough, calls /usr/bin/sum explicitly.
The problem turned out to be lack of space in /var (especially /var/tmp
and /var/spool/pkg). Because I was working remotely from the machine I was
installing on, I didn't see the error messages on the console 'till I
looked in /var/adm. Anyway, I temporarly symlinked /var/tmp and
/var/spool/pkg to a disk with a huge amount of space and the
installation worked perfectly.
Thanks guys for helping,
