I have 1.8.1 running on SuSE 9.0 as I write.  I use the "Professional" 
release, which comes with most development packages, certainly all the ones 
needed to compile R-1.8.1.  If you do not have the "Professional" version, 
you will have to acquire the full collection.  You can use YaST to check what 
is available.  Bring up the YaST window and highlight "Software," then in the 
right hand window "Install and Remove Software."  When the window comes up, 
click on the "filter" box and use the search facility.  I would point out 
though that I have R-1.8.1 running as I write and YaST search tells me that 
the librbary you listed is not present on my system either.  What OS are you
