Many thanks to Prof.Ripley and Dr.Dalgaard. Yes, I am using gcc-3.2.2
(correctly configured for solaris 2.8) and this could be the problem.

Is there a way to fix this myself ? My machine specs are 'SunOS enterprise
5.8 Generic_108528-23 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-Enterprise'.

The R-admin seems to suggest that I can solve this by redefining the CC,
FFLAGS, CXXFLAGS and LDFLAGS in the config.site file but I am not sure if I
am reading it correctly and am unable to find the config.site file.

Thanks again.

Regards, Adai.
