Submission from: (NULL) (

When compiling R (versions 1.6.1 and 1.6.2), I get the following messages:
dumping R code in package 'methods'
Fatal error: The X11 shared library could not be loaded.
  The error was /tmp/R-1.6.2/modules/R_X11.so: Undefined symbol "R_GlobalEnv"

The compiler is GCC 3.2.1.  I'll be glad to provide more information via email.

Thanks in advance for any help!
