Possibly you may want to notify the package maintainer that his  
package is broken by not using all necessary linker flags from R. If  
you compile an R package using R makefiles, it will supply - 
lcc_dynamic automatically. It is discouraged to use custom Makefiles  
in packages as they are neither portable nor reliable - and in most  
cases unnecessary.

This was also discussed on this list many times ... ;)
