[R] R on Mandriva

You'll find that r-base and some packages are in the standard Mandriva
repositories. However, Mandriva tends to fix its packages with its
release dates. Mandriva 2008.1 has R 2.6.2 in repositories and the
upcoming Mandriva 2009 (currently in release candidate) has 2.7.2 (but
only base). If you haven't added all the mandriva repositories then
easyurpmi (google for it) will add them for you.

I compile from source, which is relatively easy once you have a build
system loaded from Mandriva repositories.

The errors and warnings from ./configure tell you what you need.
