I ran into the same issue and again it was not having proper PATH (with include folders set) and LD_LIBRARY_PATH set.

Hi, thanks for your e-mail, but it was not the case. I found the lines with the "readline/readline.h" information. This was because I did not have the realine package installed. After installing it I was able to install the R-2.0.0 using the .rpm binary version, however, I'm still not able to install the v2.2.1 from the source. Now I'm getting the following error after the ./configure command:

"...
checking whether we can compute C Make dependencies... yes, using gcc -MM checking whether gcc supports -c -o FILE.lo... yes checking how to get verbose linking output from gfortran... configure: WARNING: c ompilation failed

checking for Fortran libraries of gfortran... checking how to get verbose linking output from gcc... -v checking for C libraries of gcc... -L/usr/local/lib -L/usr/lib/gcc/i586-mandriva -linux-gnu/4.0.1 -L/usr/lib/gcc/i586-mandriva-linux-gnu/4.0.1/../../.. -lgcc_s checking for dummy main to link with Fortran libraries... none checking for Fortran name-mangling scheme... configure: error: cannot compile a s imple Fortran program
See `config.log' for more details."

I guess this is related to my compiler but I have no clue about how to fix it...
Thanks,
AB
