Installing R-0.50a4 on some of our systems I found that the mva
library doesn't build because the include file f2c.h is not available.

 make[3]: Entering directory `/afs/cs.wisc.edu/unsup/R-0.50alpha4/src/library/mva/src-c'
 gcc -g -fpic -I/afs/cs.wisc.edu/unsup/R-0.50alpha4/include   -c dblcen.c 
 gcc -g -fpic -I/afs/cs.wisc.edu/unsup/R-0.50alpha4/include   -c dist.c 
 gcc -g -fpic -I/afs/cs.wisc.edu/unsup/R-0.50alpha4/include   -c hclust.c 
 hclust.c:6: f2c.h: No such file or directory
 make[3]: *** [hclust.o] Error 1

Is it possible to search for this in the configure script?  I'm not
sure what to suggest to the installer if it is not available.  Is the
information used sufficiently well-defined that a replacement could be
generated on the fly?
