We have been trying to install R-1.0.0 on the department AIX machines
but to no avail.  I am forwarding the bug report from our system
administrator to the list.  Any help will be greatly appreciated.

BTW, the installation of R-1.0.0 on my linux box at home went like a

   Subject: R-1.0.0 and AIX 4.3.2?

   I've been having difficulty getting R-1.0.0 to work correctly under
   AIX 4.3.2.  R-0.90.1 works just fine, but R-1.0.0 dumps core with an
   illegal instruction soon after the banner message is displayed upon

      Illegal instruction(coredump)

   I've tried many permutations of using the AIX C compiler, GCC-2.95.1,
   MIT X11, AIX X11, with and without readline, IBM's F77 compiler.  They
   invariably give the same results -- Illegal instruction on startup.
   I've tried with and without saved workspaces (generated by R-0.90.1).

   The fact that 0.90.1 compiles and runs fine with identical configure
   arguments leads me to believe this may not be a problem on my end, but
   is more likely a problem with R-1.0.0.

   Has anyone else seen this problem?

   Has anyone using AIX 4.3.2 sucessfully compiled a working R-1.0.0?
