Thank You All,
I think all of this may have been due to shared library conflict
headaches. At one point, I inadvertently upgraded my Perl install to
5.10, and I think that messed up a lot of my libraries. I have now
started with a clean Ubuntu install, and am going to see if I can work
my way back up to installing R and making that work. I will recontact
the list if this problem persists through this reimaging of my server.

It is from the wellspring of our despair and the places that we are
broken that we come to repair the world.
