R-beta: R on AIX running with errors

I am doing a project to make R-0.61.1 available on 30 IBM RISC/6000
machines running AIX Running the make command works fine after
some changes, but R does not behave as it should.
Here some examples of error messages which I get:

> plot(1:20)
Error: Length cannot be negative
> hist(1:20)
Error in seq(z$l, z$u, length = z$n + 1) : negative length vectors are not
> library(mva)
Error: invalid number of copies in "rep"

I made two changes because of AIX, before starting ./configure and make,
so that make was runing without error messages

1. Setting SHLIBLDFLAGS="-shared" in the config.site file
2. deleting the function "double trunc(double x)" in the file

Changes I made because of installing R on an AFS file system are
substituting hard links by symbolic links and preventing, due to this
changes, the deleting of files.

Who has an idea how to make at least the graphic functions working?
