Error linking 9i database

We have run the installation of Oracle 9.2 with the runinstaller on an AIX 5.2 server. When linking the Oracle9i database 9.2.01.0, we get the following error:
Error

    Requires Free Membership to View

invoking target install of makefile /oracle/RD1/920_64/sqlplus/lib/ins_sqplus.mk

Maybe we did not set all variables correctly. We were logged in as an Oracle user (orard1), and we set the following variables:

HOME=/oracle/RD1
USER=orard1
PATH=/oracle/RD1/920_64/bin:/oracle/RD1:/usr/sap/RD1/SYS/exe/run:/usr/bin:/etc:/
usr/sbin:/usr/ucb:/oracle/RD1/bin:/usr/bin/X11:/sbin:.
LOCPATH=/usr/lib/nls/loc
LOGNAME=orard1

This common mistake is because your environment variables were not set correctly. The most common mistake is to set PATH incorrectly. Refer to the Oracle documentation for your specific platform.

Once you've got all of your pre-installation tasks done properly, the installation should work and you should be able to compile correctly.
