Dear "R"-Team,
we had some problem to install R-2.7.2 on HP-UX 11.11 on PA-Risc platform.

1.) i load down the Software and made a extract of the tar-file in a
specific Directory.

2.) i follow the instructions on the INSTALL file:

3.) during "configure" we got a error message see below:
     checking for history_truncate_file... no
     configure: error: --with-readline=yes (default) and headers/libs are
not available

    and the "configure" stops.

on the HP-UX server there are the HP Compiler and the GNU compiler with
gmake and and ... installed.
Please have a look to my logfiles. Hopefully you had a idea what we can do.
Thanks a lot for your help
