but since you're on Linux you can find much more yourself :
Run R inside the debugger:

cd tests/Examples
../../bin/R -d gdb

 and then in (gdb) 

r --vanilla < base-Ex.R

 and it will (hopefully) stop at the same place
 but you'll see more

    gml4410>    The configuration parametsr used are:

    gml4410> environment parameters:

    gml4410> CC=gcc CFLAGS=-O2 FC='g77 -L/usr/central/lib' FFLAGS=-O2
    gml4410> CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/common/include LIBS=-L/usr/central/lib

FC='..' looks pretty fishy to me, but that maybe another issue entirely.

    gml4410> ./configure --prefix=/proj/informatics-build/GML/R/Linux-ia32
    gml4410> \ --without-readline --without-tcltk --without-gnome

    gml4410> (An equivalent build on an SGI Irix6.5 system also compiles,
    gml4410> with various warnings, but then fails to paas the checks
    gml4410> either, but fails on a later script).
