[R] Compiling R on an Alpha

Sorry to be  such a nuisance but after asking  for help with compiling
R-1.1.0 on  an Intel-based machine I  now have another  problem on the
Alpha DS-10 server which my students use.

Compilation and instalation  proceed perfectly, but when I  invoke R I

[etdx01:bin]$ ./R
Fatal error: The X11 shared library could not be loaded.
  The error was /home/etptupaf/R/lib/R/bin/R_X11.so: undefined symbol: R_GlobalEnv

I  have  read  the  INSTALL,   README,  and  FAQ  files and grep'ed the
docs  for  info  on R_Global_Env, but found none.

Aside: I  am using gcc  as I  have ever done,  because I first  want a
functional executable.  However,  I have read (in www.alphalinux.org?)
that substantial improvements on  speed of heavily floating point code
can be achieved on Alphas by using the Compaq C compiler (available at
their site). If somebody has some experience with that, I would like to
hear from him/her.
