I have a dual Xeon x86_64 system running Red Hat AS 4. There are no x86_64 rpms in http://cran.us.r-project.org/bin/linux/redhat/el4/ (the i386 ones are a point release behind anyway) , and the fc4 rpms have a whole web of dependencies I don't want to pull in. So I decided to build http://cran.us.r-project.org/bin/linux/redhat/SRPMS/R-2.2.1-1.fc3.src.rpm .

When I ran rpmbuild. one of the make-check tests failed.

from /BUILD/R-2.2.1/tests/p-r-random-tests.Rout.fail:
> dkwtest("weibull",shape = 1)

weibull(shape = 1) FAILED
Error in dkwtest("weibull", shape = 1) : dkwtest failed Execution halted

I was able to build the rpm after removing "--enable-r-shlib" from the spec file.

http://cran.us.r-project.org/bin/linux/redhat/SRPMS/ReadMe says: "The new SRPM for R 2.1.1 builds the shared library version of R. This is, unfortunately, slower than the version without the shared library."

It doesn't say why, if it's slower, it builds it that way. Can anyone shed some light on the subject?
