[R] 2.0.1 compilation problem on Fedora Core 2

A useful clue, Brian. Maybe this is the reason as foreign.ts.out
* Installing *source* package 'foreign' ...
/usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/R-2.0.1/bin/INSTALL: ./configure: /bin/sh: bad
interpreter: Permission denied
ERROR: configuration failed for package 'foreign'
Does this try and execute from /tmp by any chance? I had a similar
problem recently because /tmp is mounted (rw,noexec,nosuid) for security
reasons. I had to alter /etc/fstab temporarily and reboot as /tmp is used
by many things.
The others installed so far have 0 size:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Dec 1 15:19 VR.ts
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Dec 1 15:19 boot.ts
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 196 Dec 1 15:20 foreign.ts.out
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Dec 1 15:20 cluster.ts
