Don't know if this is the correct place to post this question however I
thought I would start here.  The Fedora 1 packages are built without the
option '--enable-R-shlib' turned on in the R.spec file.  Other software,
like, plr (the postgresql library that calls R) needs the shared lib. 
Any chance that we can change the R.spec file to include:

[iwallace at localhost SPECS]$ diff -bu R.spec R.spec.orig
--- R.spec      2004-04-27 15:31:51.000000000 -0600
+++ R.spec.orig 2004-04-27 15:31:39.000000000 -0600

I'm not sure if there are other issues with using the shared library,
I'm very new to R and just joined the mailing list.
