I guess that partly comes to me :-)) 
As an R learner ( not yet user : I am not managing to get the data I want
to work with from a series of .dbf and .ntx files built by an old clipper
program whose authors no longer care about ... the problem is not so much
the files themselves as not losing the information as to the relevant
correlations ) I am very grateful to all that I read on this list, so ...
I would like to help. 
However: it is a little less than a year I've been
using linux and so far the times I tried to build RPM's it didn't work. 
If someone could be so kind as to explain exactly what is needed I can try 
again !
