[R] Installing R1.6.0 on SGI

I am currently trying to install R 1.6.0 on an SGI Octane running:

> uname -aR

IRIX64 hcu091 6.5 6.5.9m 07201608 IP30

and I am receiving a fatal error during the make step.  Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Here is the final output from "./configure"...


R is now configured for mips-sgi-irix6.5

Source directory: .

Installation directory: /usr/local

C compiler: gcc -g -O2

C++ compiler: g++ -g -O2

Fortran compiler: g77 -g -O2

X11 support: yes

Gnome support: no

Tcl/Tk support: yes

Readline support: no

R profiling support: yes

R as a shared library: no

Recommended packages: yes


A minor issue is that even though I have installed readline (although in

a nonstandard directory), it is not supporting it.

Here is the fatal error from "make"...

all.R is unchanged

../../../library/methods/man/methods.Rd is unchanged
