[R] Problem with R-1.9.1 under Solaris 2.6

I have installed R-1.9.1 on an 6 year old Sun running Solaris 2.6. After some initial failures to compile I used the :
compilers with gnu make. [could not get gcc 3.4.1 to compile]
 All but one of the .c programs compiled [that being src/main/connections.c which I manually compiled using cc] and the 
make check 
tests all worked [apart from the internet]. 

However I get the following, where weight is a column vector :
> np <- sum(weight)
> n <- nrow(weight)
> weight <- as.single((n*weight)/np)
Error in structure(.Internal(as.vector(x, "double")), Csingle = TRUE) :
        (list) object cannot be coerced to double
> dim(weight)
[1] 38  1

> version
platform sparc-sun-solaris2.6
arch     sparc
os       solaris2.6
system   sparc, solaris2.6
major    1
minor    9.1
year     2004
month    06
day      21
language R

I have searched the R-help and R-devel archives but not seen anything directly relevant. Any help would be much appreciated.
