Please specifiy your question more clearly. 'configure [options]' followed by 'make [option' and 'make install' _obviously_ works. Look eg at https://buildd.debian.org/build.cgi?pkg=r-base for all Debian builds, Ubuntu's are similar.

And my copy of the file INSTALL says

    SIMPLE COMPILATION     As you are reading this file, you have unpacked the R sources and are     presumably in the top directory. Issue the following commands:

   	    ./configure
	    make

How does that not mention make, please ?

Please read the R FAQ entry 2.6 'Are there Unix binaries for R' and look at http://cran.r-project.org/bin/linux/ubuntu on how to obtain R 2.10.1 pre-built thanks to the work of Vincent and Michael.  

| So, I have to compile R-2.10.1 from the source.

Nope, see previous point.  

| Will appreciate help on how to install R-2.10.1

Here it is. Next time, please feel free to ask on the r-sig-debian list for Debian / Ubuntu question rather than filing a non-bug bug report.

Dirk
