[Rd] Compilation problems

I'm trying to compile and install R for my user in a machine without admin privileges. I have done this before, so this is fine. But I have 2 problems with R compilation right now.

After ./configure --prefix=/home/me/dir/ I get this:


R is now configured for x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu

  Source directory:          .
  Installation directory:    /home/balacobaco/bbin

  C compiler:                gcc -std=gnu99  -g -O2
  Fortran 77 compiler:       gfortran  -g -O2

  C++ compiler:              g++  -g -O2
  C++ 11 compiler:           g++  -std=c++11 -g -O2
  Fortran 90/95 compiler:    gfortran -g -O2
  Obj-C compiler:	      

  Interfaces supported:      X11, tcltk
  External libraries:        readline, ICU
  Additional capabilities:   PNG, JPEG, TIFF, NLS, cairo
  Options enabled:           shared BLAS, R profiling

  Recommended packages:      yes

configure: WARNING: neither inconsolata.sty nor zi4.sty found: PDF vignettes and package manuals will not be rendered optimally


Problem 1) How do I get rid of this warning about "inconsolata.sty" and "zi4.sty". Can I have this file locally for my installation or compilation? Where do I download it? Where do I put them?

Problem 2) The compilation fails with the following message:

configuring Java ...
Java interpreter : /usr/bin/java
Could not create the Java virtual machine.
Error occurred during initialization of VM
Could not reserve enough space for object heap

*** Java interpreter doesn't work properly.

make[1]: [stamp-java] Error 1 (ignored)
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/me/dir'


What happened? What's wrong with my server's java? What caused this error, so I can try to fix or skip it, if possible.

Thank you,
