I am trying to make the R-0.62.1 distribution on a DEC alpha running
Digital Unix 3.2d.

I have run into a few problems.....

(1) the Makefile in src/graphics need to have INCLUDES= -I../include
not -I ../include

(2) I have the standard DEC fortran 90 compiler which needs to link R.binary
with a -nofor_main flag. The appropriate slot in appears to be
ignored, which means Makeconf itself has to be edited. However in Makeconf
LDFLAGS appears to be ignored too, so one just has to make do with
LDCMD=f90 -nofor_main

(3) The last problem has completely stumped me. The make goes OK until
R binary installed
make[3]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/R-0.62.1/src/main'
make[3]: Entering directory `/usr/local/R-0.62.1/src/library'

This is with gnu make. I get the same thing with the DEC make. It looks as
though it may be something to do with src/library/LIBSETUP, which is
certainly rather different from the version in 0.61.1. (R-0.61.1 made OK,
but only with gnu make not DEC make. )
Any ideas?
