Subject: R-beta: Installation problems on SGI-IRIX


first, I'd like to congratulate everybody involved in the development of 
this statistical software. I've been working for a while with R on 
Macintosh, and I like the incredible freedom that we get when working 
with a flexible program like R. Experiencing serious limitations in the 
implementation of functions and reuse of results of previous analyses in 
traditional statistical packages like Statview and SPSS, R appears to me 
a good alternative. So Thanks again !

I've changed my computing environment to Silicon Graphics (Indy with IRIX 
6.2) and tried to install the software, but I could not make it 
completely. After decompression, I issued the configure command. All I 
get is an echo "You can't cross-compile R". I don't know what to do with 
this. Does anybody have a clue about what's wrong.

Your help is much appreciated.
