Hi Peter! Thanks so much for your help. Installing ncurses and ncurses-devel

manage to notice that?

(Wasn't Kevin's though. But there's really no way of helping people
who build from source, beyond what they get from configure. Well, you
could refer them to read the spec files...)

You can actually *build* the R rpm on SuSE without a lot of stuff...
Detlef has put absolutely no dependency information in the spec file.
