Just for Curiosity:
R-1.3.0 up to R-1.5.1 compiled well on both Tru64 OSF4.x and OSF5.1 with
the respective CC/CXX/FXX and Compaq's libs.

Starting with R-1.6.0, OSF4.x has troubles compiling/linking R with
Compaq's compilers/libs (and readline). On OSF5.x R compiles still fine
out of the box. 

Since most of our boxes are now (far too late) on OSF5.x, I did not find
it worth anything to go into details and search for incompabilities.

I have no idea on which Tru64 OSF  version the mentioned AlphaServer is
running but perhaps this workaround might be worth a shot.



P.S.: My gut feeling is that this is merely an incompability with
Compaq/HP's libs (which aren't best conforming standards).
