Dear Prof. Ripley,

thank you for your offer for assistance. Here are some more details from our sys admin (who sincerely thanks you for the hint to Matrix/src/taucs/taucs.h):

Since we don't have a license for the cc compiler anymore I have to use gcc. Trying to compile the Matrix package via the Makefile in Matrix/src doesn't work as this uses the cc compiler and I don't know how to change that in an appropriate way (there is no configure script for example).

As I don't really understand how R compiles downloaded packages and how and where I could change the configuration for that, I tried the following dirty hack:

... which did the trick. But where should OSTYPE_solaris really be set?

I hope these informations can shed some light onto our problem and assist you in tracking down the reason. Thanks again.

 Best regards -- Gerrit Eichner
