 Hi all,

I met a problem with R-2.10.1 installation on AIX5.3. The error message is as following:

I use IBM compiler with below parameter:

    OBJECT_MODE=64
    LIBICONV=/where/libiconv/installed
    CC="xlc_r -q64"
    CFLAGS="-O -qstrict"
    CXX="xlC_r -q64"
    CXXFLAGS="-O -qstrict"
    F77="xlf_r -q64"
    AR="ar -X64"
    CPPFLAGS="-I$LIBICONV/include -I/usr/lpp/X11/include/X11"     LDFLAGS="-L$LIBICONV/lib -L/usr/lib -L/usr/X11R6/lib"

    --prefix=/my_R_dir \
    --enable-R-shlib \
    --enable-BLAS-shlib \
    --with-x \
    --with-readline=no

Actually I successfully compiled R-2.8.1 on this machine wiht these parameters and a patch on http://prs.ism.ac.jp/~nakama/AIX/changefiles. Would you mind to tell me what I can do if I want to build R-2.10.1

Thanks,
Xu Jin
