Searchng the archives for the messages containing:

error & making & R-1.8
error & make & R-1.8

I found two possibly relevant messages. Both concerned compression routines, 
and the one reply that I could find indicated that the local libraries might 
be out of date or corrupt. I think these are the relevant libraries:


Building R-1.8.1 on:

RedHat v7.2
gcc v2.96

produces the following error messages:

make[4]: Entering directory `/usr/local/R-1.8.1/src/extra/zlib'
making infutil.d from infutil.c
make[4]: *** [infutil.d] Segmentation fault
make[4]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/R-1.8.1/src/extra/zlib'

make[1]: *** [R] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/R-1.8.1/src'

I suspect a type mismatch, but was unable to find it. The Makefile is so 
cryptic that I couldn't work out the compilation command and thus couldn't 
get more info. Thanks for any help.
