Hi All:

I tried to download and install "quantreg" (a package for doing quantile
regression) from CRAN. When I ran install.packages ("quantreg") within an R
session, I got the following error message:

<----Beginning of error message --->

* Installing *source* package 'quantreg' ...
** libs
g77 -mieee-fp -fPIC -O2 -g -pipe -march=i386 -mcpu=i686 -c akj.f -o akj.o
make: g77: Command not found
make: *** [akj.o] Error 127
ERROR: compilation failed for package 'quantreg'
** Removing '/usr/lib/R/library/quantreg'

<---end of error message --->

I use R version 1.9.0 on a fedora core 1 operating system. The installation
was attempted in superuser mode. Would greatly appreciate if you can provide
solutions about how to install the package.

TIA,
Arin Basu
