[R] Installing R on RedHat7.0

I recently got a new machine, running RedHat Linux 7.0 (kernel 2.2.16,
XFree864.0.1), and tried to install R-1.1.1 on it from the rpm file on
CRAN. RPM complained about missing dependencies:
The RH7.0 installation includes later versions of these libraries. I went
ahead and forced an installation, and of course R wouldn't work. By
linking libreadline.so.3 to libreadline.so.4.1, I got R running, but the tk
demo won't run. Linking the tlc and tk lib's to later versions (8.3) got a
bit further, but the demo fails with an error about function "delTcl" not
in load table--this function was apparently dropped from the new version.
I built libtcl8.0 and libtk8.0 from source, and installed them both. This
got rid of the "delTcl" error, but the demo now fails with a segmentation
After that long-winded introduction, my question is: Has anyone gotten a
working installation of R on RedHat 7, or on any other system with the
version 8.3 tcl/tk libraries, or been able to get the earlier libraries to
work under RH7??
Thanks for any help!
