[R] Compiling shared library on Alpha/OSF1

I'm having trouble compiling and installing R as a shared library on 
Alpha/OSF1. I used

./configure --enable-R-shlib SHLIB_CXXLDFLAGS=-L/lib/cmplrs/cxx

(Using configure with --enable-R-shlib alone generated "Could not
determine SHLIB_CXXLDFLAGS" errors.) make and everything else were done 
as specified in the documentation.

It compiled everything without visible problems, but on linking libR.so I 
got the following message:

/sbin/loader: Fatal Error: Cannot map library libR.so

Has anyone heard of this happening?
