Yes, you have emailing the group fairly regularly about your troubles.

And you have been told just about each and every time to *check the output
of the configure step*.  Unless that step concludes with all relevant pieces
found, *there is no point in resuming with steps 5 to 9*.

As you are emailing from an educational institution, consider getting local
help about configuring and compiling software.  Building R is *extensively
documented in a dedicated manual* but the manual may need someone with more
familiarity with the process than you currently have.

Good luck, and consider to stop sending the *same* email to the list every
couple of days.

Hell, there are no rules here - we're trying to accomplish something.
