Odd. There are known issues with stock RH 6.2, but base R usually
compiles and passes make check on those systems. What usually happens
is that some packages refuse to dynload, with the error you're
The culprit is somewhere in the compiler suite - 2.95.x is known to
work, and I believe 3.0.x too (whereas the unofficial 2.96 from RH 7.0
caused trouble although later ones for 7.1 and 7.2 seem OK). You might
as well upgrade since R-1.4.0 will definitely not work with that
