Sorry.  Forgot to mention:

platform i686-pc-linux-gnu
arch     i686             
os       linux-gnu        
system   i686, linux-gnu  
major    1                
minor    7.0

language R                

Redhat 7.3.  

I'm compiling without root access, which you appear to be doing.  I
got a lot further when I tinkered with the base-Ex.R file, seeming to
have no problem with internet.R.  You seem to be saying you didn't

You should be able to find a 'fail' file to see what didn't work.  In

should be findable from.

Ideas welcome.
