Computing services here at QUT are trying to compile R0.61.2 for me on
a silicon graphics computer running IRIX Release 6.2 IP25 and gcc.
%gcc -v
Reading specs from /usr/gnu/lib/gcc-lib/mips-sgi-irix5.3/
gcc version
%perl -v
This is perl, version 5.004_04 built for irix

Basically, it was impossible for me even to get R configured although
under Linux RH4.2 and DEC ALPHA Digital UNIX V4.0B, R compiled fine.

Using gmake, some editing of configure and make files and upgrading
perl computing services got an executable but ... it doesn't work. R
can't find base package which is probably because
library/base/{INDEX,R/,TITLE} are all missing :-(

Fatal error: unable to open the base package

Has anyone had any luck compiling on a similar machine and if so have
you got any suggestions.

Thanks a lot
Peter Baker
