R 1.7.0 - for the first time - has "make check all" in the spec file and
this has brought to the light a few problems.

I must still upload RPM packages for Mandrake 8.0 (which I've managed to compile, 
but only  with --shlib disabled, because with --shlib enabled a package 
fails the check) and 8.1 (which just will not compile if make check all is 
done ... whether or not R is compiled as --shlib: one of the packages 
systematically fails on make check).

In any case, as soon as I have a little time I will examine the issue more 
closely and upload - hopefully - either working rpms or a bug report
on the relevant packages.

But before I do this I shall certainly upload a revised readme with your 
indications included. Thank you !
