I am new to R.  Just installed it on an SGI running IRIX5.3.  The install
seemed to go fine.  Some basic commands worked as did the demo().  However,
I get the following when trying to run help at the command line in R.

> help()
Error in gsub(pattern, replacement, x, ignore.case, extended) : POSIX regular expressions not available

My best guess is that configure was unable to find regcomp.  Is that
the problem?  If so, what is it and how do I fix it.  Other
