Hello everybody.

I am trying to upgrade from R-1.9.0 to R-1.9.1 on  a RedHat linux 
2.4.18 system.  I get
the following error after "tar -xvzf R-1.9.1.tgz ; cd ./R-1.9.1/ ; ./configure"
  and  "make" :

[make works for 10 minutes  ... snip ...]

I've had this three times now.
How do I get round this?
