Re: [R] problem with compilation of R on Solaris 10 in x86

This has come up several times, all with long obselete versions of gcc. R does not use __builtin_isnan, but gcc does in its own (rather than Solaris') header files. So it is an issue with the compiler, and note that 3.4.2 is an old (Sept 2004) version of the compiler.

If you are happy to use SunFreeware, they offer a pre-built R (apart for some unstated reason for the foreign package) at

http://www.sunfreeware.com/programlistintel10.html#R

and so it would appear that others have succeeded with more recent compilers.
