[Rd] R-devel does not compile under FreeBSD-7.0 CURRENT

As I said to you privately, I believe this to be a make issue: does GNU 
make work?  We don't guarantee R to work with other makes (although it 
usually does).

My guess is that the problem is the missing .m in the .SUFFIXES list
in Makeconf.in, but Solaris make and GNU make see no problem and it looks 
like a make bug to me.  I've added the suffix, so please try the current 

(This seems to be related to adding ObjC support which is apparently 
currently incomplete.)
