[Rd] R-2.3.0 make error on AIX 5.2

Thanks, that worked. Make finished without any errors on the R-patched_2006-05-10. 

To get R-patched_2006-05-10 to pass make check on the AIX 5.2 here I added $(LIBM) as you suggested in the other posting for R-2.2.1 to the end of R_X11_la_LIBADD and vfonts_la_LIBADD in the X11 and vfonts modules makefiles respectively before running make. So those makefiles, namely .../src/modules/X11/Makefile and .../src/modules/vfonts/Makefile, have 

vfonts_la_LIBADD = $(LIBR) $(LIBM)

Similar editing for the R-2.2.1 version over here allows it to pass make check. Although for some reason the axis labels and tick marks for both R-2.2.1 and R-2.3.0 still seem darker and bold-faced on the x11 device compared to R-2.0.1. Don't know what to make of that, but looks like I can live with everything so far.

We've seen something almost identical before.  Looks like fcntl is 
redefining open (and not open()).  At the top of the file is

# include <fcntl.h>


#undef open

in there.
