I'm suffering from hay fever now...


| gcc -v

I think that this gcc is `/usr/local/gcc-4.4.1-sun-linker/bin/gcc'. library when gcc compiled it is

if it follows the instruction of FAQ(gcc).

The build is done by using run time directory in LD_RUN_PATH.   LD_RUN_PATH=/usr/local/gcc-4.4.1-sun-linker/lib make

You should enumerate the run time directory of gcc in LD_LIBRARY_PATH.   LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/gcc-4.4.1-sun-linker/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

I think that it is a policy of system administration. It is not a problem of R. There is not the problem in R on Solaris10 which I use.

Sorry in advance if I'm wrong.
