[Rd] Problem building R with Sun Studio Compiler on SLES 9 SP3

In a previous thread I had problems on openSuse 10.2 building R with optimisation and discovered that if I wanted optimisation I need to turn on

-fstore -fsimple1 (the first is to force storage on some Fortran routines , the second is to ensure IEEE arithmetic, with some optimisation).

That worked for my desktop. The real problem is to work on our servers (Opterons running SLES9SP3)

Make works fine but make check fails in

base-Ex.R on IO, specifically from base-Ex.Rout.fail:

> if(capabilities("fifo")) {

+   zz <- fifo("foo", "w+")
+   writeLines("abc", zz)
+   print(readLines(zz))
+   close(zz)
+   unlink("foo")
+ }

Warning in fifo("foo", "w+") : cannot create fifo 'foo', reason 'Input/output error' Error in fifo("foo", "w+") : unable to open connection Execution halted

Does anybody know what I need to do to get this fifo capability turned on?
