You could use the Mandrake 8.1 rpm available on CRAN; if you want to
recompile it from source (SRPM is also available) I suggest you use the g77 
rpm's and the libblas/liblapack rpm's available on your Mandrake 8.1 
installation CD's ... I didn't have any problems with those.

Uninstall your g77 and as root try:
urpmi gcc-g77 egcs liblapack3 

that should do the trick.
