Hello ...

I went to build R-devel today (Redhat Linux 7.2, kernel 2.4.9-31, gcc
2.96) and am getting this error:

gcc -I../../src/extra/zlib   -I. -I../../src/include -I../../src/include
-I/usr/local/include -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -D__NO_MATH_INLINES -mieee-fp  -g -O2
-c pcre.c -o pcre.o
pcre.c: In function `do_pgrep':
pcre.c:71: parse error before `char'
pcre.c:72: `s' undeclared (first use in this function)
pcre.c:72: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
pcre.c:72: for each function it appears in.)
make[3]: *** [pcre.o] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/jgentry/R-1.8.0/src/main'
make[2]: *** [R] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/jgentry/R-1.8.0/src/main'
make[1]: *** [R] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/jgentry/R-1.8.0/src'
make: *** [R] Error 1

On my initial attempt I did a 'make clean' before configuring &
building.  On my second attempt I re-rsynced the entire r-devel
distribution to a new directory and am still getting this error.

Is this a problem w/ r-devel or a problem on my end?
