[R] solaris 64 build?

We have a solaris/sparc machine that has been running an old version of R-devel: Version 2.2.0 Under development (unstable) (2005-06-04 r34577)
which was built as m64 from sources. Attempting to upgrade to 2.4.0 the configure step
goes ok, but I'm getting early on from make:

I've tried to look at the difference in outcomes in the old R-devel version -- if I touch arithmetic.c there and then type make I get a something
almost the same as above except for the following bits that are new to 2.4.0
(this diff is after replacing spaces with linebreaks obviously.)

ysidro.econ.uiuc.edu% diff t0 t1
 > localecharset.o
 > rlocale.o
 > mkdtemp.o
 > -L../../lib
 > -lRblas

Has there been some change in the way that Rblas is used, or in isnan? It didn't seem so from a look at arithmetic.c, but this is well beyond me.

I hope that someone sees something suspicious, or could point me toward a better diagnostic. Thanks,
