This is the same problem I had with the same gcc 2.8.1 and f77
combination.  R would compile but wouldn't run without problems.  What
finally worked for me was f2c (I don't have Dec's fortran) and DEC's cc.

I set the c compiler to cc by typing
export CC

and run configure with 

./configure --with-f2c
