Re: [Rd] compile R with Portland Group compiler

Let us be clear: some things in config.log are designed to fail, so only unexpected errors are a cause to look there. The regex.c warnings are it seems from an over-zealous compiler.

The problems here seem to be the unknown use of .lo (which it seems to have coped with) and a problem in the PG's own libc, which it seems cannot be used in a shared object. That issue discussed in the R-admin manual, and seems something you do need to take up with PG. The crucial part is

> recompile with -fPIC

which is asking you to recompile their static library. If you can't use a dynamic library then this is fatal.
