If you do a ./configure without specifying --with-epm-url, it complains
that it's missing that file and offers up a suggestion to use so
that's what I used.  See configure line 2232:

--with-epm-url=<URL>    Specify the location of downloadable epm 3.7
source code. For example:

That worked, thanks.

Thanks.  I was just going by the instructions in the README.

Unfortunately, now I have yet another problem.  ./configure is now
ending like this:

checking for gnucp... no
checking for cp... /usr/xpg4/bin/cp
checking whether /usr/xpg4/bin/cp is GNU cp from coreutils with
preserve= support... no
configure: error: no, GNU cp from coreutils is needed. install or
specify with --with-gnu-cp=/path/to/it

But I am already specifying it:

# /usr/xpg4/bin/sh ./configure
--disable-odk --with-gnu-patch=/opt/csw/bin/gpatch
*--with-gnu-cp=/opt/csw/gnu/cp* --without-junit

And I do have gnu cp and it does have "preserve=":

bash-4.3$ cd /opt/csw/gnu
bash-4.3$ ls -l cp
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root          10 Jun 22  2018 cp -> ../bin/gcp
bash-4.3$ cd /opt/csw/bin
bash-4.3$ ls -l gcp
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     bin       204912 Jun 14  2014 gcp
bash-4.3$ ./gcp --version
cp *(GNU coreutils)* 8.22

bash-4.3$ ./gcp --help
Usage: gcp [OPTION]... [-T] SOURCE DEST
   or:  gcp [OPTION]... SOURCE... DIRECTORY
   or:  gcp [OPTION]... -t DIRECTORY SOURCE...
Copy SOURCE to DEST, or multiple SOURCE(s) to DIRECTORY.

Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.
   -a, --archive                same as -dR --preserve=all
       --attributes-only        don't copy the file data, just the
       --backup[=CONTROL]       make a backup of each existing
destination file
   -P, --no-dereference         never follow symbolic links in SOURCE
   -p                           same as --preserve=mode,ownership,timestamps
*    --preserve[=ATTR_LIST] *  preserve the specified attributes (default:
                                  mode,ownership,timestamps), if possible
                                  additional attributes: context, links,

Why is ./configure not picking up the correct cp even though I'm
supplying it?  Or should I not be putting /usr/xpg4/bin first in my
PATH?  It doesn't seem to like the POSIX cp.
