Re: [R] Problem in installatin under Unix

What version of R is this? R 2.2.1 is current, so why do you have 'R-2.1.0' in your configure line?

blocksort.c does not include features.h, so this looks like a broken compiler installation doing the inclusion.

Please DO study the posting guide and give us the vital information that we ask for. All we can do is advise you to use the current version of R and if that fails, to repair your compiler.
