** when I compile R-0.62.3 on RedHat 5.1, the following messages

f77 -export-dynamic -o R.binary ...
../lib/libunix.a(dataentry.o): In function `NextEvent':
/home/ming/R-0.62.3/src/unix/dataentry.c:1286: undefined reference to `XNextEvent'
../lib/libunix.a(dataentry.o): In function `GetKey':
/home/ming/R-0.62.3/src/unix/dataentry.c:1286: undefined reference to `XLookupString'

there are tens of such undefined references.  I guess it is due to
some uninstalled RPMs, but do not have any idea what they are. 

** I also tried to get binary-R in rpm files, but the message says:
<> rpm -ivh R-base-0_62_3-1_i386.rpm
failed dependencies:
     libncurses.so.3.0 is needed by R-base-0.62.3-1
I checked it, and found libncurses.so.3.0 is linked to
libncurses.so.1.9.9e under the directory /usr/i486-linux-libc5/lib
I am confused...

Your help is appreciated.
