[Rd] Implementing R on IBM p690 cluster Jump

Dear All,

recently I posted a probably difficult question concerning the 
installation and implementation of R-2.1.0 on the IBM p690 cluster 
"Jump" at the research centre in Jülich, Germany.

We identified several modifications for an installation such as:

(i) the installation of the most recent iconflib in the local user directory
(ii) the configuration command
F77="xlf" PREFIX=/home3/zdvex/ufzaloe ./configure --without-x 
--without-blas --without-readline --with-libiconv-prefix=

(iii) and the compilation command OBJECT_MODE=64 gmake

(thanks to Christoph Pospiech for help).

The really severe problem is, that the compilation now aboarts when 
making the survival R-library. This is what we get:

gmake[3]: Leaving directory `/work/.j36/R.INSTALL.3207208/survival/src'
** R
** data

** inst
** preparing package for lazy loading

gmake[1]: Leaving directory 
gmake: *** [stamp-recommended] Error 2

(see attchment, zip archive of log-file).

Besides the OS-problems (like missing readline implementation) it seems 
as if we need good help from the R developers community, as this most 
recent bug (compilation of survival) seems to an R problem.

However, we are still strongly interested in getting this stuff running,
any good suggestions very welcome!
