With regards to Peter's comment, I got R to compile on OSF 4.0C, though
I'm a little behind on versions.  I only have 0.63.3 and haven't found
anything newer...

All kidding regarding typos aside, I went through that floating point
exception business on the Alpha and I just didn't have time to make it
work.  Someone tipped me on to f2c, which I had used with my (old gcc
2.7.2.?) compiler under Linux.  I figured that the fewer different
compilers I played with, the better, so I tried f2c on the alpha.

As it turned out, f2c didn't work with gcc but did work with the
'official' cc from DEC.

I can take the stock distribution of R, and edit adding



configure --with-f2c 

works just fine.

By the way, this is a very pleasant (and helpful) mailing list !!
