Regarding Tengfei Yin's post about an error trying to install
"cluster" in 2.13.0, I have gotten an error with this package when
trying to install the released version of 2.12.0.  Here is the output
on an Ubuntu Linux system:

Here is the output of gcc -v for this system:

This R-2.12.0 installation generally works (based on testing a few
trivial things).  The same error occurs when trying to install 2.12.0
on Intel Solaris.
