Dear R People:

I'm back to installing R from source, this time on a 64 bit machine.

I'm using the R-Patched.tar.gz as my source.

When I have the openmp option set to -fopenmp, I get the error that
libgomp.spec is not found.  Ok, so I commented out the reference to

However, I ran an openmp "hello world" program using gcc and the
-fopenmp option, and it ran fine.

What am I missing, please?
