Hi R-help citizens,

I'm having trouble making version 0.99-6 of Matrix on FreeBSD 6.0.
The error message is:

* Installing *source* package 'Matrix' ...
** libs
gcc -I/usr/local/lib/R/include  -I/usr/local/include -D__NO_MATH_INLINES  -fPIC  -g -O2 -c Csparse.c -o Csparse.o

I am running:

attached base packages:

[7] "base"     

NB I was able to install Matrix 0.98-7 using the FreeBSD make without any
problem.  If I try to make version 0.99-6 using the FreeBSD make then
it fails with "Missing dependency operator" errors.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks much,
