Hello, I am trying to install R on Suse linux 10.1. To get configure to
run correctly, I had to set FPICFLAGS=fPIC.

R is now configured for i686-pc-linux-gnu

  Source directory:          .
  Installation directory:    /usr/local

  C compiler:                gcc -std=gnu99  -g -O2
  Fortran 77 compiler:       g77  -g

  C++ compiler:              g++  -g -O2
  Fortran 90/95 compiler:    g77 -g
  Obj-C compiler:

  Interfaces supported:      X11
  External libraries:        readline
  Additional capabilities:   PNG, JPEG, TIFF, iconv, MBCS, NLS
  Options enabled:           shared BLAS, R profiling, Java

  Recommended packages:      yes

When I then run make, I get:

make[3]: Entering directory `/usr/local/src/R-2.8.0/src/extra/blas'
make[4]: Entering directory `/usr/local/src/R-2.8.0/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-2.8.0/src/extra/blas'
make[3]: *** [R] Error 2

Help would be appreciated,
