That's what happened to me when in previous builds when I didn't specify "without-blas". When I specified "without-blas" in the configure step, "make check" passed. If I can get VPN to work, I can grab the build scripts I used on Tru64 4.0f. BTW, one other thing to check is whether you have System V emulation. I did, and I had to play some games with the PATH settings to get anything to work. As I noted in my previous e-mail, I essentially built the whole GNU toolchain from scratch (make, binutils and GCC) and used that to build R. I also had to rebuild Perl from scratch; our version of Perl was too old for R.

I haven't tried to build R 2.0.0 on Tru64; the project where I use R on Alpha was frozen with the build I did in January.
