[R] Compiling error R-0.90.1

I'm struggling to compile R-0.90.1 in a RedHat 6.1 machine. (I have the rpm,
but I would like to compile it, as I do under SuSE 6.3).  I have also installed
quite a few other libraries (not installed by default, in particular, *-devel-*
ones), but to no avail thus far.

Here's the compilation error after going through ./configure

[root at friedman R-0.90.1]# make
make[3]: *** No rule to make target 
`/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-pc-linux/2.95.2/include/limits.h', needed by 
`Rsock.o'.  Stop.
make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/anovo/R-0.90.1/src/appl'
make[2]: *** [R] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/anovo/R-0.90.1/src/appl'
make[1]: *** [R] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/anovo/R-0.90.1/src'
make: *** [R] Error 1

Any suggestion are greatly appreciated.

ps. I am including here lines from ./configure output that I found
potentially "problematic" or informative:

checking whether the C compiler (gcc  ) is a cross-compiler... no
checking for sin in -lmoto... (cached) no
checking for main in -lhdf5... (cached) no
checking for main in -ldxml... (cached) no
checking for main in -lblas... (cached) no

(And the last few lines)

src/include/Rconfig.h is unchanged

R is now configured for i586-unknown-linux
