Dear all,  

I have encountered errors in compiling R-2.5.0 and R-2.4.0 in a linux machine (power-pc). I can successfully build it from the source code if I do not use the '--enable-R-shlib' option while executing the './configure' command as mentioned in rpy documentation. Using the `--enable-R-shlib' option the configure step is executed properly but the `make' crashes with the following error message:  

Rdynload.o(.text+0x1246): In function `GetFullDLLPath': /home/mxc/R-2.5.0/src/main/Rdynload.c:850: additional relocation overflows omitted from the output
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

make[3]: *** [libR.so] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/mxc/R-2.5.0/src/main'
make[2]: *** [R] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/mxc/R-2.5.0/src/main'
make[1]: *** [R] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/mxc/R-2.5.0/src'
make: *** [R] Error 1

Right now I am using an older version of R, R-2.1.0 which did not produce any error during the `build' and `install' stage, however, the recent versions have some problem. R-2.5.0 installs and builds fine on its own. Any insight to this problem will be hugely appreciated.
