[R] Problem configuring R-patched

I downloaded R-patched (2005-08-04) from CRAN today. I ran ./configure --enable-R-shlib

I received the error message:

checking for recommended packages... no
configure: error: Some of the recommended packages are missing

   Use --without-recommended-packages if this was intentional

I built a previous version of R-patched successfully on my system which is running the SuSE 9,2 Pro Linux distribution. I untarred the tar ball into the same directory I did my last build on in case that's important.

The only other differences between this attempt and my successful build are:

  1. I did not use --enable-R-shlib last time.
  2. I found and installed the blas libraries for this build.

Have I messed up or made an erroneous assumption along the way?
