Hi folks,
I sent this to r-devel (twice) but somehow the email seems to have got mangled. Let me try to ask my question on this forum. any help is very much appreciated.

While trying to download the rimage package I am checking at the following step

"g++ -shared -L/usr/local/lib64 -o rimage.so equalize.o fftw_access_func.o freqfilters.o interface.o jpegio.o laplacian.o matrix.o smooth.o sobel.o -ljpeg -lfftw
/usr/bin/ld: /usr/local/lib/libfftw.a(fftwnd.o): relocation R_X86_64_32
against `a local symbol' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC
/usr/local/lib/libfftw.a: could not read symbols: Bad value
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status"

Any ideas?
