As I already have informed you folks, I have installed  R-1.1.1 on
RedHat 7.0 from source, without any problems. Besides that some on 
this list seemed to worry about the warnings the gcc compiler
issued. Nevertheless, I  haven' noticed any anomalies with the 
installed  R. Haven't been hard-testing, though.

RH 7.0 comes with gcc 2.96, which, according to gcc.gnu.org, "is not
a formal  GCC release nor will there ever be such a release. Rather, 
GCC 2.96 has been the code-name for our development branch that will
eventually become GCC 3.0". Should this make us 7.0 users nervous?
