Hi Kasper:

I hope all is well in the Bay area!

No mac, yet.  I'm still on x86 architecture.  The cpu is actually an AMD
Athlon-XP-M.  I did compile the rest of R, CRAN, and Bioconductor (yes, all
of it) using gcc 4.0.2.  There were numerous warnings on many fortran files,
mainly due to typecasting, but so far the packages I've used that included
the warnings haven't behaved badly...

I take it you haven't upgraded to SuSE 10, yet?

It's the thought that counts!!  ;^)
