[R] unexpected reloc type in dyn.load

I am getting errors trying to install contributed packages.  After running
R INSTALL, when I try to load the library in R I get something like: 

  Error in dyn.load(x, as.logical(local), as.logical(now)) :
        unable to load shared library
      unexpected reloc type 0x12
  Error in library(akima) : .First.lib failed unexpected reloc type

This happens both with akima and with odesolve (from Woodrow Setzer).

The .so file exists and seems to be of the right type.

I am building the libraries on RedHat 7.0, and I suspect some problem with
the FORTRAN compiler, which is g77 version 2.96 20000731 (Red Hat Linux
7.0) (from FSF-g77 version 0.5.26 20000731), R Version 1.1.1  (August 15,

Has anyone else experienced this or can anyone suggest a workaround (short
of installing another compiler)?
