Up to now, I always installed R in this way, and I never had problems 
with the installation under Linux.

Ok. Thanks. This time, I unpacked the sources in /usr/R-1.2.0, but installed
in /usr/R. The problem with the R shell file getting empty disappears, but...

   $ pwd
   $ make clean
   $ ./configure --with-f2c --prefix=/usr/R
   $ make
   $ make install
   $ /usr/R/bin/R --verbose

   Type `q()' to quit R.

   now dyn.load(/usr/R/lib/R/library/ctest/libs/ctest.so)..
