[Rd] installation of R (2.14.1 and 2.15.1) fails due to [reg-packages.Rout] Error

Hello,

I'm trying to install R from sources on two Linux machines (both with Suse 12.2):

1.
> uname -a

Linux cs-wsok 3.4.6-2.10-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT Thu Jul 26 09:36:26 UTC 2012 (641c197) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux 2.
> uname -a

Linux csltok.swansea.ac.uk 3.4.6-2.10-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT Thu Jul 26 09:36:26 UTC 2012 (641c197) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I am trying version 2.14.1 on first machine and 2.15.1 on second machine. On both machines I'm using gcc and gfortran, version 4.5.4. On both machines I get the same test-error (the example below is for 2.14.1, but the messages are identicall with 2.15.1):

running code in 'reg-examples1.R' ... OK
running code in 'reg-examples2.R' ... OK
running code in 'reg-packages.R' ...make[4]: *** [reg-packages.Rout]
Error 1
make[4]: Leaving directory
`/home/csoliver/OKplatform/ExternalSources/builds/R/R-2.14.1/tests' make[3]: *** [test-Reg] Error 2
make[3]: Leaving directory
`/home/csoliver/OKplatform/ExternalSources/builds/R/R-2.14.1/tests' make[2]: *** [test-all-basics] Error 1

The error-log in reg-packages.Rout.fail is (again for 2.14.1, but it is identical for 2.15.1, except of the obvious differences):

I hope somebody can help. In the past the build-process worked (at least for R-version 2.14.1) with Suse 11.2 and gcc version 4.5.3. Thanks for your attention.
