Dear list,

I hope this is the right forum to ask. I have just downloaded and compiled
R, but I get a segfault after I start R.

make, make test/check, went OK.

My system is
gcc 2.95.2

Here is a backtrace from gdb:

(gdb) file /usr/local/lib/R/bin/R.bin
Reading symbols from /usr/local/lib/R/bin/R.bin...done.
(gdb) run
Starting program: /usr/local/lib/R/bin/R.bin
