Just for the record, adding

  CFLAGS="-mfpmath=sse -msse2"

to the config.site file used to compile the 32bit version of R's
development version fixed the problem indeed.  The installation script
ran from the command line with out error to the end, and every day
since then at this crontab'd time.

Looks as if it would be good indeed if R's autoconf script would enable
sse on 32-bit unix systems. :)

Thank you for the solution.
