[R] trouble installing packages

I can't install some packages (even some of the recommended
packages), especially those that use f77, on an SGI.

Here's what happens:

fry: R CMD INSTALL quantreg_3.09.tar.gz
* Installing *source* package 'quantreg' ...
** libs
f77 -OPT:IEEE_NaN_inf=ON    -g -c akj.f -o akj.o

... and there it hangs.  I tried using MAKE=/usr/bin/make and
MAKE=gmake; that makes no difference.  Don't know what else to try.

If I try to work through this a step at a time, here's what happens:

  ${R_HOME}/bin/SHLIB -o quantreg.so *.f

.. and everything compiled like a dream.

Reading my way through INSTALL, it looks tricky getting all
the other steps executed properly.  Any suggestions?
