I tried to compile R-1.6.2 from source on Solaris 2.8. There is no 
problem with configure and make. However, `make test' fails with error

If I ignore this and run `make install' etc, R seems to be running fine 
untile I plot anything like `plot(1,1)'. One graphics window will appear 
and disappear, R will die saying 'bus error'.

I am using gcc 3.2.1, I can supply further info if necessary.
