Hi All,

I'm trying to install R from source on an Intel machine running Linux 
(RedHat 6.2) and I am getting errors (Error 139, Error 2, and Error 1) on 
'make check'.  Perhaps I've forgotten something basic?

Here's what I've done:
/configure --prefix=/home1/froth/R --enable-R-shlib --with-tcltk --with-x
make clean
The output from 'make clean' is as follows:
[froth at lama R-1.3.1]$ make check

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
