This might solve your problem without helping.  Having spent I bit of time
trying to build R with the pkgadd version of GCC from Sunfreeware and not
getting anywhere I downloaded the source for GCC 3.4.2 and built this, then
used this to build R.

Everything worked fine.

I am having problems compiling R on a Solaris 10 opteron box we have on

See `config.log' for more details.

I have installed gcc from sunfreeware

Looks like the following are not found:-

configure:26575: gcc -o conftest -g -O2 -I/usr/local/include -
L/usr/local/lib conftest.c -
ldl -lm   -lg2c -lm -lgcc_s -lfrtbegin: -lg2c: >&5
ld: fatal: library -lg2c: not found
ld: fatal: library -lfrtbegin:: not found
ld: fatal: library -lg2c:: not found
ld: fatal: File processing errors. No output written to conftest
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
configure:26581: $? = 1
configure: failed program was:
| /* confdefs.h.  */

Any idea where to get them from ?
