This might solve your problem without helping. Having spent I bit of time trying to build R with the pkgadd version of GCC from Sunfreeware and not getting anywhere I downloaded the source for GCC 3.4.2 and built this, then used this to build R.

Everything worked fine.

I am having problems compiling R on a Solaris 10 opteron box we have on trial.

checking for Fortran libraries of g77... -L/usr/ccs/lib -L/usr/lib - L/usr/local/lib -L/usr/local/lib/gcc-lib/i386-pc-solaris2.10/3.3.2 - L/usr/ccs/bin -L/usr/local/lib/gcc-lib/i386-pc- solaris2.10/3.3.2/../../.. -lfrtbegin -lg2c -lm -lgcc_s -lfrtbegin: - lg2c:

I have installed gcc from sunfreeware

Looks like the following are not found:-

configure:26575: gcc -o conftest -g -O2 -I/usr/local/include - L/usr/local/lib conftest.c -
ldl -lm -lg2c -lm -lgcc_s -lfrtbegin: -lg2c: >&5

ld: fatal: library -lg2c: not found
ld: fatal: library -lfrtbegin:: not found
ld: fatal: library -lg2c:: not found
ld: fatal: File processing errors. No output written to conftest
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
configure:26581: $? = 1
configure: failed program was:
| /* confdefs.h. */

Any idea where to get them from ?
