I tested compilation on another Fedora 10 installation:

1) fresh installation from the installation DVD 
(Fedora-10-x86_64-DVD.iso instead of the harddisk installation based on 
the the live CD)

2) online patches and updates

3) install of Java 386 packages instead of Java x64 because sunstudio 
installer did not run with default Java (was the same with the life CD)

4) downloaded R-devel svn rev 47981; rsync-recommended

5) PATH to sunstudio appended to default PATH in .bashrc;
    config.site like described in R-admin,
    note however that IMHO it should be "suncc"
    instead of "csunc" -- a typo in R-admin.texi ??

6) configure

7) make

=> everything compiled fine with the exception of Matrix which breaks 
with exactly the same error message as my former report.

I got exactly the same.

Not yet for me with Sun Studio 12; however everything was fine when 
switching back to the Gnu compilers.

As said, just for the record. The installation was intended for checking 
our own packages which now compile well with both compilers.
