Stéphane,

the problem is that your compiler doesn't work (as the message clearly tells you). You must have working compiler (and other development tools) before you try compiling R.

I have no clue how you managed to get such a broken compiler, because Debian comes with a complete, working compiler suite ... you should fix your OS in the first place ...

BTW according to Google Ralpha is a "Russian American Space Cooperation", so I wonder how you got it on your computer in the first place ;)

Cheers,
Simon
