What says "odump -Dl your_R_install_path/bin/R.X11" ?

I compiled 0.90.1 with DEC cc (DEC C V5.6-075 on Digital UNIX V4.0
(Rev. 878)) and DEC f77 (DIGITAL Fortran 77 V5.0-138-3678F) without
problems (alpha EV5, 4.0E). 

You may try my binary packages at


Get rgs901.tar, untar it (creates temporary subdir rgs901), install with
"setld -l rgs901/kit". More details (e.g. how to remove the setld kit) at

rgs901.tar should be there tomorrow, or get it from

Up-to-date EV6 binaries are currently only available as RPMs, which would
not help you too much unless you install rpm, and many other needed
