I just compiled R and a bunch of packages on a fresh Mandrake 8.1 last week.  
No problems at all.   I just downloaded the R source from CRAN, binaries for 
ATLAS, LAPACK, and libreadline, and away it went.  Packages all compiled fine 
with install.packages().

I'll double-check where I got the LAPACK binaries from, but I think it was 
from the 8.1 rpms.  ATLAS was precompiled from their website.  libreadline 
was definately from the 8.1 rpms.

Good luck.
