I have tried to install ROracle (V. 0.5-7 and 0.5-5) the usual way
1 - set/export variables of Oracle environment (ORACLE_HOME,
2 - R CMD INSTALL ROracle_0.5-7.tar.gz (R Version 2.3.1, patched per 11.
July, and other versions)

but I get following error:

checking for C compiler default output... a.out

checking whether we are cross compiling... no

>From German:
      "Keine Targets"= no targets
      "Schluss"= finished

It seems to be some trivial sed error, but I can't figure out which file to
edit in order
to correct it. This is using Linux RHAS 2.1 with gcc V. 2.96 and V. 3.4.4,
sed (GNU) Version 3.02

Thanks a lot
