Note, the R-admin manual tells you *not* to use that version of gcc.
Now you know why the INSTALL file says
The main source of information on installation is the `R Installation
and Administration Manual', an HTML copy of which is available as file
`doc/html/R-admin.html'. Please read that before installing R. But
if you are impatient, read on but please refer to the manual to
resolve any problems.
So, why not follow that advice? Preferably, *before* sending a bug
FYI, the gcc Sparc Solaris bug is fixed in 3.2.3 and 3.3.
