this means that  cluster.so  was not built at all.
On my home Debian Linux system, I get one line of linker call
after the *.f -> *.o compilation ones :

gcc -shared  -o cluster.so clara.o daisy.o fanny.o meet.o mona.o
    pam.o spannel.o twins.o   -L/usr/local/lib
    -L/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-linux/2.95.2 -lreadline -ldl -lncurses
    -lg2c -lm 

If such line does not appear, I think it means that your R
configuration and your current compiler/linker setup don't match
and you probably won't be able to build any other package using
compiled code either.

Try to (partly) re-install R itself by 
and then try again to install a package with C/F source.
