Actually, reverting back to R-3.1.3 as that has built better, and I 
shall apply lessons learned as I move along.

I have had a number of e-mail exchanges with people who support gcc for 
POWER, and have learned - read was told bluntly - that -bexpall, while 
getting the job done in many cases - is very inefficient (read - has a 
negative impact on performance) AND can lead to duplicate symbol errors 
as imported symbols are also exported.

Based on this, and other things I have run accross my focus at the 
moment is changes to ./configure (for later modification to 
./configure.ac and m4/* - as appropriate.

I understand that having R on AIX may not be anyone's priority (if even 
concern). Comments here are welcome. I will always take them seriously. 
I request, especially if I have not acknowledged a reply, to (also) post 
to http://forums.rootvg.net/aixtools/r-for-aix/ - as I read/check those 
forums much more often than I am able to check mail.
