Hello,

yes I have checked out R-Admin-Manual.

here what I've done:

export MAIN_LD=/usr/local/bin/ld # gnu linker export SHLIB_LDFLAGS="-W1,-G"
export MAKE=/usr/local/bin/make
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib
export MAIN_LDFLAGS = -Wl,-brtl

then I start configure the Result is:

config.status: executing stamp-h commands

R is now configured for powerpc-ibm-aix4.3.2.0

  Source directory: .
  Installation directory: /usr/local

  C compiler:                /usr/local/bin/gcc -mno-fp-in-toc -DANSI
-I/usr/local/vni/CTT4.0/include
  C++ compiler:              g++  
  Fortran compiler:          xlf95  -qarch=com -qfixed

  Interfaces supported:      X11
  External libraries:        readline, BLAS(generic)
  Additional capabilities:   PNG, JPEG, MBCS, NLS
  Options enabled:           R profiling

  Recommended packages:      yes

configure: WARNING: I could not determine SHLIB_CXXLDFLAGS configure: WARNING: you cannot build info or html versions of the R manuals
configure: WARNING: you cannot build PDF versions of the R manuals

$

Ok what does the warning with SHLIB_CXXLDFLAGS mean ? Is this imported ?

then I started make:

$ /usr/local/bin/make MAIN_LD='/usr/local/bin/ld'

Where does __start is ? Did I miss some definitions ?

Which linker I should use the IBM (/usr/bin/ld) or GNU (/usr/local/bin/ld) ?

Any help are very welcome,
