Dear Martin Maechler and/or R-devel,

>I'm reverting to R-devel. Please *never* direct such topics to

My original email was to a group list. I later "replied" to email received. I'm sorry if that was the wrong thing to do.

I have obtained and built the GNU make. This gets me much farther along in the installation process.
That is, I no longer get the error message:

         Make: cannot open /share/make/vars.mk. Stop.

But now I get errors from "make check" and "make check FORCE=FORCE" with R-1.9.1 and earlier (from "make") with R-2.0.0 (today's version).

>We may need more details (e.g., output of 'configure' ; exact error message).

Attached are archives with output from the latest two trials, both using GNU make.

I tried, but that made no difference to my problem. The attached R-1.9.1 results are not from that trial, but the R-2.0.0 results were obtained this way.

I would appreciate any help you can provide.
