I've compiled and installed pre R 0.62.3 (Aug. 19) under Solaris 2.6 using gcc
version 2.8.1 and g77 0.5.23. Everything went smoothly and my DSE library tests
work ok. There is a very occasional problem with a "Segmentation Fault - core
dumped", which also occured in 0.62.2, but I have not been able to reproduce it
reliably. I also had to increase R -v from 250000 cells (which worked with
0.62.2) to 300000 cells for one of my tests.

There is however, a small problem with installing the HTML documention in a
private (i.e. not RHOME/library) location. The file


linking the main documention to the packages is written (BTW this will probably
fail if the package owner and the R owner are not the same) but the links in it
are not quite correct. For me the link indicated in that file is

  <A HREF="../../library/dse/html/00Index.html">
which would be RHOME/library/dse/html/00Index.html, but it should be
 <A HREF="{package_location}/dse/html/00Index.html">
