Took advice, and moving forward. Currently both 32-bit and 64-bit are 
having similar issues - which I prefer to one working perfectly and the 
other having issues.

Main issues are dublicate issues and a missing function - that I would 
expect to be in libm (logf()).

So, for both 32-bit and 64-bit, even with -lm added to LDFLAGS it is 
ending with:

byte-compiling package 'grDevices'
Warning in solve.default(rgb) :
   unable to load shared object 
   rtld: 0712-001 Symbol logf was referenced
       from module /data/prj/cran/32/R-build/lib/libRlapack.so(), but a 
runtime definition
             of the symbol was not found.
Error in solve.default(rgb) : LAPACK routines cannot be loaded
Error: unable to load R code in package 'grDevices'
Execution halted
/data/prj/cran/R-devel/share/make/lazycomp.mk:7: recipe for target 
'../../../library/grDevices/R/grDevices.rdb' failed

For the interested, I have captured the screen outputs of the configure 
and make - sub-directory 003 is the last 64-bit I tried, and 
sub-directory 004 is the 32-bit build. See 
http://download.aixtools.net/test/R/2015-11-23/ as I do not want to bog 
down mailers with included files.

* Note that the 32-bit build failed because the 64-bit curl include 
files were still installed. MAYBE it is worth considering having curl
included again in the source distribution. That way the correct include 
files can be included in R directories for packages et al that are being 
built around/based upon R environment.
