[Rd] make hanging during compile of r-patched/R-devel on Fedora Core 3

On a new Dell laptop, with a fresh FC3 installation (with latest updates 
applied) I am experiencing make hanging consistently after/during 
building grDevices. This happens when using the configure flag 
--with-lapack (I have the LAPACK rpm distributed with FC3 installed). 
The last two lines of output are:

make[5]: Leaving directory 
make[4]: Leaving directory 
hang here

There are no errors or warnings printed to the console.

The same thing happens with r-patched. Both source trees were checked 
out using subversion.

If I remove the configure flag for lapack, r-patches and r devel both 
build fine. I'm not sure where to look for error messages or to diagnose 
the problem. Has anyone experienced a similar problem? Where should I 
look for any errors/logs? Any other suggestions?

All the best,
