Hi all, 

The systems guys here in the stat dept don't seem to be able to
compile R on the Dec Alphas or on the SGIs.  Can anyone give them a hand?

We are unable to compile this software on either platform. I don't think
there is anything more we can do at this time. 

Here are several options for the future:

1) If you know of anyone who has successfully compiled this software on
   either DEC Alpha (running Dunix 4.0) or on a 64 bit SGI (running Irix 6.2)
   then maybe they would share their work with us.

2) We can watch for future versions of the software. A newer version may
   fix the comilation problems.

3) Maybe you have a grad student who knows Fortran who could work on the

that's all for now,
