    I compiled R 1.1.0 source on SUN Sparc
solaric 2.5.1, using gcc 2.95.2.
I need to use R to publish graphics to the web,
the NEWS in this version said that there is a new
png() device on X11(). But when I tried
  > png()
I got this error.
  Error in png() : No png support in this version of R

  Can anyone tell me how to compile png support
on solaris/unix? The new bitmap() device already
does what I need but it requires ghostscript program

  Please respond to my email in addition to the list.
