I have to install R 3.0.2 on a computing center ressources for some of 
our users and I encounter a compilation error. I take some times to 
search on the Internet but I find nothing relevant so I send an email to 
this list. If this is not the right one, please tell me which is more 

The installation is done on an Intel based server, running Suse 10.2.
Linux Erdre-m #1 SMP Thu Jan 14 18:30:10 UTC 2010 
x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I use Intel compiler icc (v 12.1.4) and the corresponding MKL library 

I set the environment like this :

export OBJECT_MODE=64
source /opt/intel/composer_xe_2011_sp1.10.319/bin/compilervars.sh intel64
export CC="icc"
export CXX="icpc"
export F77="ifort"
export FC="ifort"
export AR="xiar"
export LD="xild"
export CFLAGS="-std=c99 -O2 -openmp -xHost -g -traceback"
export FFLAGS="-O3 -openmp -xHost -g -traceback"
export FCFLAGS="-O3 -openmp -xHost -g -traceback"
export CXXFLAGS="-std=c99 -O2 -openmp -xHost -g -traceback"
export MKL=" -L${MKL_LIB_PATH} -L${OMP_LIB_PATH} -Wl,--start-group 
-lmkl_gf_lp64 -lmkl_intel_thread -lmkl_core -Wl,--end-group -liomp5 

The configuration step is ok :

./configure --prefix=/ccipl/logiciels/R/3.0.2 --with-blas="$MKL" 
--with-lapack --with-readline=no > configure.log 2>&1

but during the compilation phase I get a fatal error :
icc -I. -I../../src/include -I../../src/include -I/usr/local/include 
-DHAVE_CONFIG_H     -std=c99 -O2 -openmp -xHost -g -traceback  -c 
toms708.c -o toms708.o
toms708.c(2078): based on template arguments #589: previously specified: 
no exceptions will be thrown
toms708.c(2098): Remark: diag_message: missing type substitution

compilation aborted for toms708.c (code 4)
make[3]: *** [toms708.o] Erreur 4
make[3]: Leaving directory `/ccipl/users/gmoebs/SOFT/R/R-3.0.2/src/nmath'

And I don't know how to handle it.

Thank you in advance for your help.
