[R] 2.0.1 compilation problem on Fedora Core 2

I have a compilation problem on FC2, 2xXeon box.  

The following dialogue output from the end of the compilation illustrates:

[very large snipping sound ...]
* DONE (cluster)
begin installing recommended package foreign
make[2]: *** [foreign.ts] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory
make[1]: *** [recommended-packages] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory
make: *** [stamp-recommended] Error 2

There are no error messages in the configuration step - it only says I
can't prepare DVI or PDF versions of the manual.  Fair enough - info will
do quite nicely.

It seems there is a problem trying to install package 'foreign' and
perhaps this leads to the other two errors.

The compiler suite is 3.3.3-7.

I have the full config.out and error.out files stored for inspection if
required.  Nothing appears to be installed.

Any clues?
