The Red Hat RPMS are compiled for Red Hat Linux.  Although Mandrake
started off as Red Hat + KDE, the two distributions are now diverging,
and there is no guarantee of binary compatibility. Ideally, there
should be a separate binary RPM package for Mandrake.

It would be nice if someone who uses R on Mandrake would take on board
this task.  It is not especially hard work, and simply involves
installing the required development packages, then rebuilding the
source RPM.

Any volunteers?
