Changes to the bin/R front-end interlude script at 2.4.0 (cf: 2.2.0) have broken R on (Dec/Compaq/HP) OSF1.

There are 3 occurrences of "${@}", but this is the incorrect syntax for adding $@, as on older Bourne shells this will add an empty (but present) parameter. The result is that the build fails while attempting to add in the Recommended libraries because "ARGUMENT '' __ignored__" end up on the gcc command line.

The fix is to edit src/scripts//R.sh.in to use the correct, original Bourne shell syntax:


(ie: if there is a $1, add quoted $@, else do nothing) on the THREE occurrences of "${@}"
