That's an ancient version of perl, of which there are several variants,
and the one I had worked on Solaris 2.7.  My memory is that 5.00503 works,
and earlier versions of 5.005 are betas.  So which version precisely do
you have?

I believe this is a bug in your perl install, not in R.  Why don't you try
the current perl 5.8.0?  That does work on reasonably recent Solaris.
