[R] Compiling R on RS6000 AIX 4.3

I've been searching through the R help archives and came across only one AIX
compilation question in March, which received no public responses. I'm
currently having the same problems with the "Illegal instruction" and core
dump of running R 1.0.1 on AIX 4.3.

Firstly, the R distribution was missing some FORTRAN routines, which I found
on the net and added, by modifying src/appl/Makefile.in and
src/appl/ROUTINES (otherwise ld complains about missing symbols). The ten
routines were: dasum, daxpy, dcopy, ddot, dnrm2, drot, drotg, dscal, dswap
and idamax. (I found this strange. I would have thought that all necessary
core files should have been included??)

It then compiled with gcc 2.95.2 and g77, but the 'make test' dumps core,
when running R.

I've just tried compiling R 1.1.0, and it's throwing out a lot of errors
about missing C routine symbols.

Has anyone compiled and succesfully run R on AIX 4.3.3?
