[R] new platform (?) -- problems compiling

I'm trying to get R working on linux-PPC (linux on a Macintosh, or, in my
case, a Power Computing clone).
I'm using version 0.62.4, and I'm getting the following errors during
compile in arithmetic.c:
44: warning: struct exception declared inside parameter list
45: conflicting types for matherr
46: dereferencing pointer to incomplete type
55: dereferencing pointer to incomplete type
and then the "make" stops.
I haven't looked at arithmetic.c yet; I'm pretty new at this.
I also had the following messages from configure:
checking for main in -ldxml ...no
checking for main in -lblas ...no
checking for vfork.h ...no
(but then it says there is a working vfork)
checking for dl.h ...no
checking for ieefp.h ...no
checking for ieee754.h ...no
checking for dnet_ntoa in -ldnet ...no
checking for dnet_ntoa in -ldnet_stub ... no
I can certainly imagine that missing some of these things might cause the
errors in compilation (although I'm not sure how). If anyone can tell me
what sorts of packages I might be missing and where I should look for
them, or what changes to make to the code so I can compile, I'd
