[R] R-1.1.0 on Alpha?

Has anyone succeeded in compiling R-1.1.0 on a Digital (Compaq) Alpha
running OSF4.0F (or E)?  Everything seems to compile OK (except the
frequent "Warning:  Unresolved:" at link time - this threw me off the
scent for a while!), but then at run time I get:

Fatal error: The X11 shared library could not be loaded.
  The error was dlopen: cannot load /am/aqua/home/ray/S/R/osf1/R-1.1.0/bin/R_X11.so 

The file does exist, so I am at a loss as to what to try next:

circa>  ls -al /am/aqua/home/ray/S/R/osf1/R-1.1.0/bin/R_X11.so
-rw-r--r--   1 ray      staff     278528 Jul  6 11:48 /am/aqua/home/ray/S/R/osf1/R-1.1.0/bin/R_X11.so

I have compiled with both gcc/g77 and cc/f77 with no difference.

As far as I can tell, gdb does not help, since the program hasn't
started running yet.

Any ideas?
