Sorry. I posted the contents of foreign.ts.out from an attempted "make" that included the -m64 options for the gcc, etc.

I'm running

        ./configure --prefix=/opt/net/r

My config.site contains:

    CC="gcc"
    CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/include"

    F77="g77"
    LDFLAGS="-L/opt/net/utils/gcc3.4.1/lib/"
    CXX="g++"

Everything worked fine up until it got to the "foreign" package.

There are more but I'll stop here for now. I assumed that this were no big deal since I got the message

        R is now configured for sparc-sun-solaris2.9

when configure finished running.

Thanks.

32bit builds?
A few lines above the line "gcc -m64" suggests to check again and compile also with 32-bit.

Did everything before foreign work smoothly? Which configure options have you specified? Any errors or warnings from configure?
