Hello veeryone, I nedd some help here.

The problem is I was trying to install R on my Irix system, with little 
success: I got the following ugly error messages: watch out:

begin installing recommended package mgcv
Cannot create directory "": No such file or directory
* Installing *source* package 'mgcv' ...
** libs

What could the problem be here?
