Hi, there

     I'm totally new to this. I used to use SPLUS, but think maybe
useful to try R at home.
But seems it doesn't like me. I got error message says

            ld: cannot open -lg2c: No such file or directory

    My OS is openlinux 2.3. I use egcs-2.91.66.  I searched under
/lib/egcs-2.91.66/ but found no libg2c.a. There's only a libgcc.a.
Thought maybe g77 people changed its name from g2c to gcc, so I tried to
change FLIBS in both MkRules and Makeconf.  This didn't work out.
    My next try is to download egcs-g77 rpm from redhat. This one has
file libg2c.a. However, it requires GLIBC_2.1 and GLIBC_2.0 (don't know
why it needs both version). I have glibc from caldera installed
already,  don't want to mess it up with redhat.
     My last try is to cry for help at here.  Many thanks to any
