I'm upgrading from R-1.4.1 to R-1.5.1, locally on my Linux PC running

after running 'configure' this is what I get  (just in case it helps
figuring out what follows later...)

R is now configured for i686-pc-linux-gnu
  Source directory:          .
  Installation directory:    /usr/local
  C compiler:                gcc  -D__NO_MATH_INLINES -mieee-fp -g -O2
  C++ compiler:              g++  -mieee-fp -g -O2
  FORTRAN compiler:          g77  -g -O2
  X11 support:               yes
  Gnome support:             no
  Tcl/Tk support:            yes
  Readline support:          no
  R profiling support:       yes
  R as a shared library:     no

but when I type 'make' I receive the following error messages (these are
just the last few lines of many screenfuls of output, where things seem
to be working well 'til...)

make[4]: Entering directory `/home/tebaldi/R/R-1.5.1/src/library/methods'
dumping R code in package 'methods'

make[1]: *** [R] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/tebaldi/R/R-1.5.1/src'
make: *** [R] Error 1

I haven't had any trouble installing previous versions (but please notice,
I haven't tried installing R-1.5.0 ). What I noticed in the configure
output that differs from configuring for R-1.4.1 is the C++ compiler 
(then c++, now g++)...but that's about as far as I can get!

Does anybody have any suggestion?
thanks in advance
