Dear R Discussion Group,

Thanks for making such an interesting and capable Statistics package 
available. It certainly "saved my bacon" during this past academic quarter. I 
have had no trouble at all installing the sources on my linux box: The 
configure and make scripts work perfectly. I have had no luck attempting to 
install these at work, though. My workplace uses a Solaris 8 network. When I 
run the configure script, logged in as a user, I get the following error 
message: checking size of int... configure: error: cannot compute sizeof 
(int), 77

I have attached the complete configure session to this email as file 
"it_doesnt.work". Any suggestions as to what to do will be greatly
