We need more information, at the minimum the line which compiled
CHMfactor.o. Can you make the install log (you may need to run this
again) and your etc/Makeconf available on-line?
At first sight your C++ compiler is missing -m64: the R-admin manual
'For a 64-bit target add -m64 to the compiler macros and use something
like LDFLAGS=-L/opt/csw/lib/sparcv9 or LDFLAGS=-L/usr/local/lib/amd64
I see I used
CC="cc -xc99 -m64"
CXX="CC -m64 -library=stlport4"
FCLIBS="-lfai -lfsu -lfai2"
in config.site. And BTW, it is always worth checking the manuals of
current R-patched: your compiler postdates the pre-release period for

You need to give references for what you are quoting here (there is
much misinformation on the Internet). I suspect it is simply that you
didn't specify the C++ compiler correctly.

Maybe, but really your local IT support is there to help your use of
your OS: this is a Solaris issue, not an R one.
