[R] Request for help with getting R to work on a DEC Alpha

I am currently attempting to install R on our DEC Alpha computer, and am
having a little trouble.

I have f2c installed in lieu of a Fortran compiler, and have installed
libf2c in a subdirectory below where f2c lives, although as you can see
below, libf2c is not being found during configuration. I'm not sure what I
would need to do to rectify this.

However, my main problem is with the 'make': I get the message "Don't know
how to make %.f", as you'll see below. I'm afraid that my Unix skills fail
me here.

Looking forward to receiving any help you can give. Please reply to:
