Thanks; configure completes succesfully using --with-readline=no. However, toward the end of running make, it reports

mkdir ../share/locale/en@quot
mkdir ../share/locale/en@quot/LC_MESSAGES   en@quot
you should 'make docs' now ...
*** Error code 255
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `R.1' Current working directory ~/btyner/R-2.3.1/doc *** Error code 1 (ignored)
building all R object docs (text, HTML, LaTeX, examples) you need Perl version 5 to build the R object docs *** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `help-indices' Current working directory ~/btyner/R-2.3.1/src/library *** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `docs' Current working directory ~/btyner/R-2.3.1/src/library *** Error code 1 (ignored)
begin installing recommended package VR

I do not have perl installed, as I thought one could install sans documentation.
