[R] Problems with R make - related to blas

I am having problems installing R-2.7.2 on a maching running OpenSUSE
Linux 10.2. Initially, R couldn't find a Fortran compiler, so I
downloaded and installed compat-g77-3.3.5-38.i586.rpm. I then set
FPICFLAGS=fPIC in the config.site file.

I next configured using ./configure, with no errors.

When I run make, I get the following error:

make[3]: Entering directory `/usr/local/src/R-2.7.2/src/extra/blas'

make[4]: Entering directory `/usr/local/src/R-2.7.2/src/extra/blas'

g77 fPIC -g -c blas.f -o blas.o

g77: cannot specify -o with -c or -S and multiple compilations

make[4]: *** [blas.o] Error 1

make[4]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/R-2.7.2/src/extra/blas'

make[3]: *** [R] Error 2

make[3]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/R-2.7.2/src/extra/blas'

make[2]: *** [R] Error 1

make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/R-2.7.2/src/extra'

make[1]: *** [R] Error 1

make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/R-2.7.2/src'

make: *** [R] Error 1

I'd appreciate it if anyone could guide me around this problem...

Thanks, William
