[R] Quantile Regression Error

I installed the package quantreg, but something is wrong. I have no Fortran
knowledge, but from programming background it seems that the code as some 
bug/inconsistency. I could only find the file rq.f (see error message below)
in the directory created
after untar the package (~/quantreg/src/rq.f). I edited the file and in 
fact there's a bunch of "go to ..." statements where things are going wrong.

I believe there's nothing "missing" in my o.s. and/or applications. I was
able to install the survival analysis package error free.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance to all for your inputs.
