[R] `R INSTALL' error

I am trying to install the quantreg package following the FAQ instructions.
Here's what I am doing and the correspondig error messages:

[root at localhost /root]# R INSTALL -l /usr/lib/R/library quantreg
Installing package `quantreg' ...
g77 -O2 -fpic -c rq.f -o rq.o
make: g77: Command not found
make: *** [rq.o] Error 127
ERROR: Compilation failed for package `quantreg'

I edit the Makeconf file under /usr/lib/R/etc and in fact there's a line
that reads:

FC = g77

I changed it to FC = gcc, but still get an error messages, although not the
same (of course) and, I believe, down the line.

Additional Information:

R Version 0.63.1  (December 5, 1998)
Linux RedHat 5.1

I would appreciate any help in solving my problem.


ps. I was able to use R REMOVE command (not on quantreg, of course).
