I am trying to install R (0.63.2) on a Digital Unix 4.0b 
Alpha Server 2100A using gcc 2.8.1 and f77 v  It 
seems to compile OK.  However, when I try to run R I get 
the following message:

Type   "q()" to quit R.
Floating exception

Any thoughts on what the problem ("FLOATING 
EXCEPTION") might be would be helpful. I am slightly 
suspect of the fortran compiler but can not say for certain 
that it is the problem.  Many thanks in advance.
