Re: [Rd] alpha, portable use

I am still confused about this (and it is still happening with R-beta). Writing R Extensions suggests I need a Makefile or Makevars in my package, but that has not been the case previously. Is there now a requirement that all packages need Makefiles or Makevars if there is fortran to be compiled? This is only happening on one of my systems. Building R and make check work fine on that system, but it seems that not all the information gets passed along to package compiles.

(BTW, this is just a warning, but Kurt suggested we try to eliminate warnings.)
