[R] Installation help (saveload.c)

I'm trying to install R on a SunOS 5.6 system.
The first problem I encountered was during configuration.
 From config.log:

configure:7171: checking whether the C++ compiler (c++  ) works
configure:7187: c++ -o conftest  -I/usr/local/include  conftest.C 
-L/usr/local/lib 1>&5
ld: fatal: library -lstdc++: not found
ld: fatal: File processing errors. No output written to conftest
configure: failed program was:

#line 7182 "configure"
#include "confdefs.h"

int main(){return(0);}

I've asked local system administrators for help finding the missing 
library file. While waiting, I specified CXX=gcc in config.site as a 
possible work-around. This allowed configure to create a makefile.

But now, make fails:

main[61]% pwd
main[62]%  gcc -I. -I../../src/include -I../../src/include 
-I/usr/local/include -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -g -O2 -c saveload.c -o

                  from /usr/include/rpc/rpc.h:39,
                  from saveload.c:229:

                  from saveload.c:229:
/usr/include/sys/model.h:32: #error "No DATAMODEL_NATIVE specified"

The errors appear to be due to lines in select.h and param.h. These 
appear to be Sun-supplied files, so at this point I don't know what 
to do.

Thanks for any suggestions.
