You might want to exchange f77 with g77 there. Try that first.

Did you build the documentation? Without that, you are not likely to
make the checks succeed.

What you're seeing is a make check error, not a build error, so it
would be nice to know where it went wrong. The easiest way to do that
is to 

cd tests/Examples
../bin/R --vanilla < base-Ex.R

and then report the last few lines.
