Install R on HP-UX ia64



Did anyone installed R on HP-UX ia64 server successfully? When I tried to compile its source code, got this error message:


3502 Lines Compiled
Make: Don't know how to make #.  Stop.
*** Error exit code 1


Any input is greatly appreciated!

Errors like this in open source code may be due to not using GNU make.

It would be helpful to see command lines uses and complete error messages.

The last line before the error:

   ar cr liblzma.a ...

   ranlib liblzma.a

Where is this in your makefiles?

You seem to have lots of macros with the value "#".

Do you have makefile rules that start with "@" to suppress printing?  These are the kiss of death in debugging makefiles.  (Unless they are in front of a shell echo.)
