I've (remote) access to a new Linux system which has some flavor of Rehat
installed.

Compiling R-0.64.2 fails -- at the end when eda.so should be made.

    make[4]: Entering directory `/u/u2/maechler/Linux/R/R-0.64.2/src/library/eda/src'
    gcc -g -O2 -fpic -I../../../../include -c line.c -o line.o
    gcc -g -O2 -fpic -I../../../../include -c smooth.c -o smooth.o
    ld -shared -o eda.so line.o smooth.o
    ld: bfd assertion fail elf32-i386.c:621
    ld: bfd assertion fail elf32-i386.c:1414
    make[4]: *** [eda.so] Segmentation fault
    make[4]: *** Deleting file `eda.so'
    make[4]: Leaving directory `/u/u2/maechler/Linux/R/R-0.64.2/src/library/eda/src'
    <.....>
    make: *** [R] Error 1

Interestingly, "mva" {instead of "eda"} works fine...

Further, the number of "ld: bfd assertion fail ..." lines is not constant. Above we had 2 of them; but I have also seen 5 : ld -shared -o eda.so line.o smooth.o ld: bfd assertion fail elf32-i386.c:621 ld: bfd assertion fail elf32-i386.c:621 ld: bfd assertion fail elf32-i386.c:621 ld: bfd assertion fail elf32-i386.c:621 ld: bfd assertion fail elf32-i386.c:1414 or three....

I'm guessing that the gcc/ld/library combination hasn't been installed/configured properly... ???
