Re: [R] Problem compiling R 2.1.* on SUSE 9.2

what point exactly in the command sequence does it fail? during make? or make install?

You might try saving the output and the error from the build into a file? Something along the lines of
./configure 2>&1 >filename

or even
./configure 2>&1 >filename | tee configure_output.txt
