[R] need help with building R on Solaris without using shared FORTRAN libraries

I need to build R (we're currently at R version 0.64.0) for
Solaris 2.5.1 on SunSPARC without using the libF77.so and
libsunmath.so shared libraries. I'd like to use statically
linked libraries instead.

Nothing I have tried has worked as measured by executing
the command "ldd R.binary" to see whether it references
the shared libraries or not.

This is what I've tried:

1) Modified config.site to uncomment the FPICFLAGS line
   and set the flag to the following variations:


2) Set FPICFLAGS as an environment variable before running configure.

3) Modified all Makefiles (after configure) to remove references to -PIC.
   This builds OK but still shows that R.binary is referencing those
   shared libraries.

4) Modified R.binary link command in src/main/Makefile to link with
   libF77.a and libsunmath.a.  R.binary still wants to use those
   shared libraries.  Could this be built into f77?

Help !!!
