R-beta: Debian 2.0 and R

I am trying to compile R on my Debian 2.0 machine.  I have both gcc and
egcc (required for g77).  Since the configure script doesn't check for
egcc I used CC=egcc (even used LDCMD=egcc) in the config.site file.
Everything worked fine until the final binary where it tries to use gcc

  egcc -g -I../include -c unique.c
  egcc -g -I../include -c util.c
  egcc -g -I../include -c version.c
  gcc -export-dynamic -o R.binary arithmetic.o array.o attrib.o bind.o
  builtin.o character.o coerce.o colors.o complex.o context.o cov.o cum.o
  ld: cannot open -lf2c: No such file or directory

and exits with the above error (it works if I go to the src/main directory 
and execute the above with egcc instead).  How can I make the configure 
and make scripts to use egcc throughout?
