Thank you, Ei-ji.

I haven't tried the aix_R-2.7.1_Rshlib_include_configure.patch for two reason:
#1 I have to compile R2.7.0 although I can reproduce the trouble on R-2.7.1.
#2 Actually, I don't know how to use this patch to R-2.7.1. Does this
need AIX admin permission?

And thanks for telling me the pacthed R-2.7.1.aix080701.tar.gz, I will
try this and let you know the result. BTW: do we also have a patched

I will also try to export OBJECT_MODE=64 before configuring without
--with-libiconv-prefix and remove JAVA path from PATH of when
compiling R.

In a word, thank you very much for taking care of this.
