Have you upgraded all the rpms mentioned in the INSTALL? It is possible
I suppose that you have too recent versions, as well as possible that
you have too old ones. That does work on both my RH6.0 systems, and it
was critical that I upgraded the gtk+ packages; before I did I got similar
problems.

I have moved this to R-devel, as a more appropriate place IMHO.
