It is a routine included in R.

More likely that  R_HOME/etc/Makeconf is wrong. From memory, you 
need a flag on Alphas for S-PLUS which allows unresolved references
when building shared libraries, and I guess you may also need it here.

In short, rpart is doing exactly what it is expected to, but your
building of a shared library is not.
