First, let me say how glad I am to discover R! As a former user of S
at the University of Toronto and, briefly S-Plus from StatSci (I had
a binary version of that on Slolaris for a while), I was really glad
to find the "R" project.

This is perhaps not your bug, but I did have one minor glitch in
compiling R. OpenBSD 2.8's math.h does not export the "struct
exception" unless you define __LIBM_PRIVATE. The attached patch is
all that is needed to make it compile. Feel free to apply this patch
in future releases, or not (maybe with "#ifdef __OpenBSD__" around it).

Again, thanks for the software.
