following Prof. Ripley's advice on 
http://www.mail-archive.com/r-help@r-project.org/msg85925.html, I still 
cannot install sprng version 2.0 on fedora 12 computer, R version 2.11.1 

upon installing rspng package in R with 
install.packages("rsprng",dependencies=TRUE), i got this error:

checking sprng.h usability... no
checking sprng.h presence... no
checking for sprng.h... no
Cannot find sprng 2.0 header file.
ERROR: configuration failed for package ‘rsprng’
* removing ‘/usr/lib/R/library/rsprng’

So I installed sprng 2.0 package from 
http://sprng.fsu.edu/Version2.0/quick-start.html, however i got this 
error while compiling the source using make:

metropolis.c:157:14: error: operator '!' has no right operand
metropolis.c:172:12: error: operator '!' has no right operand
metropolis.c:324:12: error: operator '!' has no right operand
make[2]: *** [metropolis.o] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/hendro/Downloads/sprng2.0/TESTS'
make[1]: *** [metropolis] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/hendro/Downloads/sprng2.0/TESTS'

Any idea would be appreciated.

Thank you
