Just in case others make my mistake, the problem was that I had a .R directory in my home directory, which had a Makevars file in it with CC=gcc. I don't remember why I had this, but it was being read for package building and throwing everything out.

I thought the problem was that I had tried to use a --with-blas argument as an option to the configure script like:  --with-blas="-L/opt/freeware/atlas/atlas-3.7.37/lib/ -lf77blas
-lpthread -latlas" since I had built R with gcc like this in the past.
But it still doesn't seem to compile the packages. Here is the approach I have taken, on a freshly untarred directory:

edit site.config so that it contains:

CC=icc
CFLAGS="-g -O3 -wd188 -ip"
F77=ifort
FFLAGS="-g -O3"
ICC_LIBS=/opt/intel/cce/10.1.012/lib
IFC_LIBS=/opt/intel/fce/10.1.012/lib/
LDFLAGS="-L$ICC_LIBS -L$IFC_LIBS -L/usr/lib64" CXX=icpc
CXXFLAGS="-g -O3"
FC=ifort
FCFLAGS="-g -O3 -mp"

Run configure like:
./configure --prefix=/opt/freeware/R/R-2.6.2/

This results in:

R is now configured for x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu

etc/Makeconf has:

-ldl FCPICFLAGS = -fpic FPICFLAGS = -fpic ....

The only reference to gcc I could find was OBJC = gcc

Could this be a problem? I tried changing this to icc -c99 but this made no difference.

Since it seems to work for other users, I assume there is something in my setup that is preventing it from working, though I am not sure where to look. PATH and other environment variables look okay. Any suggestions would be welcome.

Thanks
Robert

It's working for other users of icc. Check what CC is set to in etc/Makeconf, and if it is not 'icc -c99', reset it.
