That's an obselete and broken compiler, and the R-admin manual says

@command{gcc} 3.2.1 and 3.2.2 generate incorrect code on 32-bit Solaris
builds with optimization, but versions 3.1, 3.2, 3.2.3  and 3.3 work

Please do pay attention to the documentation, as the INSTALL file asks!
You probably haven't read that either, so please note it 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.
