we have installed R-2.5.0 at a Debian 4.0
./configure --with-x=no && make && make checks && make install

There are no problems and R is running very well.
R version 2.5.0 (2007-04-23)

attached base packages:
[1] "stats"     "graphics"  "grDevices" "utils"     "datasets"  "methods"
[7] "base"

But when we install Bioconductor or only the library(affyio) we get the 
downloaded 57Kb

I think that there is missing a zlib library, but zlib-bin and zlibc are 
What is wrong?

Thanks a lot
