I have discovered a problem with the compilation of the sm package.

On debian 2.2, sm was not compiling.

* Installing *source* package 'sm' ...
** libs
g77   -fPIC  -g -O2 -c routines.f -o routines.o
gcc -shared  -o sm.so routines.o   -L/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-linux/2.95.4
-lreadline -ldl -lncurses -lg2c-pic -lm -L/usr/lib/R/bin -lR
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lg2c-pic
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [sm.so] Error 1
ERROR: compilation failed for package 'sm'

But updating to a newer version of g77 and g77-2.95 fixed the problem:
