[R] arith-true mean() fails make check on IRIX

Hello,

I am building R-2.4.1 on an SGI IRIX platform, using gcc 3.3. gmake check failed, and the arith-true.Rout.fail file indicated:
> is.na(mean(c(1,NA,NA)[-1], trim = .1, na.rm = TRUE))
[1] FALSE
>

I tried the mean() command in R and got:
> mean(c(1,NA,NA)[-1], trim = .1, na.rm = TRUE)
[1] Inf

I think the problem is in the na.rm = TRUE, because I get:
> mean(c(1,NA,NA)[-1])


[1] NA

How serious is this problem, and is there a workaround ?

thank you
Kate
