After setting the flags to -fPIC using ./configure --with-x=no --with-lapack="/apps/lib/LAPACK/lapack_LINUX.a" CPICFLAGS=-fPIC FPICFLAGS=-fPIC
I still get the following errors:cc -std=gnu99 -shared -L/usr/local/lib -o grDevices.so chull.o devNull.o devPicTeX.o devPS.o devQuartz.o init.o make[5]: Leaving directory `/home/vivekv/sw_alg/R-2.5.0 /src/library/grDevices/src'
