Thanks a lot !

I have read the R-admin manual before turn to the internet, but I didn't read it carefully. Sorry about that.

Yes, it does help.

Now I used the following command to configure according page 28(*B.7.5 IRIX*): "
env CC=cc F77=f77 CXX=CC CPPFLAGS="-I/user_data2/jfxiao/local/include -I/usr/freeware/include" LDFLAGS="-L/user_data2/jfxiao/local/lib -L/usr/freeware/lib32" CFLAGS="-O2" FFLAGS="-O2" CXXFLAGS="-O2" ./configure --prefix=/user_data2/jfxiao/local --disable-mbcs --disable-nls MAKE=gmake
"

This command ran successfully, and get the following output:

"

Then I ran `gmake` to make, but it fails. I got the following error message:

It's strange since the return value of ngettext() do have a value type of "char *".

Can somebody tell me why ?

I've run `grep "wctrans_t" */* ` in "/usr/include“ but get nothing.

I've also tried to complie with gcc.

Acoording the instruction on page 28(*B.7.5 IRIX*), I used the following command to configure:
"
env F77=f77 FFLAGS="-O2" CPPFLAGS="-I/user_data2/jfxiao/local/include

-I/usr/freeware/include" LDFLAGS="-L/user_data2/jfxiao/local/lib 
-L/usr/freeware/lib32" ./configure --prefix=/user_data2/jfxiao/local 
--disable-mbcs --disable-nls MAKE=gmake

"
(Note that I have to specify F77=f77 or the configure step will fail.)

The command run without problem and gave out the success message: "

Then I ran `gmake` to compile, but it failed again. Next is the last part of the output:

I have read the manual again and ased some people in our lab, but get no helpful information.

I'm not familiar about compilation in Unix, so I come here to bother again.

Thanks again for any help !
