I am installing R on a Sun Solaris 64-bit machine.  I followed the
instructions in the "R Installation and Administration" guide.  I am amazed
at how much is going on during the installation process and I congratulate
the people who have put all this together for the ones amongst us who don't
have the required skills to do it.

The installation went fairly well I think, I got the following Warnings
from "configure".  I guess that the required packages to build the
different R manuals were not found on the machine, I am a little surprised
regarding the PDF manuals since Acrobat reader is installed and
"/opt/Acrobat5/bin" is on the PATH; emacs is also installed and in the PATH

configure: WARNING: you cannot build DVI versions of the R manuals
configure: WARNING: you cannot build info versions of the R manuals
configure: WARNING: you cannot build PDF versions of the R manuals

"make" ran with no complaints.  "make check" ended with the following
messages, is that a concern, should I pursue the installation or is this
realy a fatal error as the message states?  If so what should I do

running tests of Internet and socket functions
  expect some differences
running code in 'internet.R' ...*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `internet.Rout'
Current working directory /actuaria/application/R-1.8.1/tests
*** Error code 1 (ignored)

Thank you very much for your support,
