[R] compilation options to get install.packages() to invoke tcl/tk

Hi UseRs,

I've just installed 2.10.0 on Ubuntu hardy, compiling from the tar.gz bundle.

install.packages() just says "Error in install.packages() : no
packages were specified"

The "normal" hardy 2.6.2 version pops up a tcl/tk menu for repositories.

I'm assuming I missed a configure option for tcl/tk, but the configure
script says that --with-tcltk is
the default.

Can anybody tell me what I missed please?
