Hi folks:

I have a feeling this must be a FAQ, but I did not find the answer in R 
Installation and Administration manual.  Please point me to the right place 
to look for answer to this question if it's already answered.

I am running 1.4.1 on an Alpha PCA56 (aka 164SX) running Redhat Linux 7.1 
(kernel 2.4.19-pre4).  I built 1.4.1 from sources and it is installed in 
/usr/local (the default).  I did compile and install some additional packages 
for 1.4.1 besides the recommended ones.

I want to upgrade to 1.5.0 now (it is being built now).  Do I need to 
uninstall 1.4.1 before I "make install" 1.5.0?  If yes, how exactly?
