Probably nothing. I have seen this effect on Solaris when the configuration
did not work consistently (that is it re-configured with different settings
because the environment variables were different: usually because I did not
ask it to re-configure).
I think the reason is that either HAVE_FINITE is not defined in
src/include/Rconfig.h or it is defined and FINITE_BROKEN is also defined.
Can you send me (privately)
the result of typing `R.version' and
details of the compilers used
It might be worth doing
(keep the output)
to try once again.
