Dear R supports:
I am trying to install R-1.8.0 on an IBM p630 box (AIX 5.1) for a user.
When I try to run make after I run ./configure, I get the following error:
 # make
Target "R" is up to date.
make: 1254-002 Cannot find a rule to create target R from dependencies.
make: 1254-004 The error code from the last command is 1.

When I use GNU make "gmake", I got the following error:
# gmake
gmake[1]: Entering directory `/mnt/local/R/R-1.8.0/m4'
gmake[1]: Nothing to be done for `R'.
gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/mnt/local/R/R-1.8.0/m4'
gmake[1]: Entering directory `/mnt/local/R/R-1.8.0/tools'
gmake[1]: *** No rule to make target `R'.  Stop.
gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/mnt/local/R/R-1.8.0/tools'
gmake: *** [R] Error 1

Any suggestions and help will be appreciated.
