Ups, sorry, I forgot it. I thought that referencing the request
could be enough.

I'm trying to compile R 1.6.0, 1.6.1 and 1.6.2, and they all fail
on the same manner. With R 1.7.0 we have some problems for compiling

I use GNU C version 3.1 and the G77 in the same package.

As I mentioned we have an AIX5.1 operating system running on a 
cluster of Power3 cpus.

When I launch R on the machine and quit from it, it makes a 
segmentation fault and core dumps.

Now I remember, when I tried to compile with XLC/XLF there were
several warning on a SETJMP or similar but this compiler didn't
fail on that point. (XLC failed when was unable to locate the
symbol __fixsfsi)

Best regards and thanks,

The optimist thinks that this is the best of all possible worlds,
and the pessimist knows it.
-- J. Robert Oppenheimer, "Bulletin of Atomic Scientists"

We scientists, whose tragic destiny it has been to make the methods
of annihilation ever more gruesome and more effective, must consider
it our solemn and transcendent duty to do all in our power in
preventing these weapons from being used for the brutal purpose for
which they were invented.
-- Albert Einstein,       "Bulletin of Atomic Scientists"
