Hi guys,


I am trying to compile R 2.15.1 with Open64 4.5.1 and ACMP 5.1.9 (open64_64_fma4_mp).


The configure went without an error but when I compiled it, it failed when linking objects for


/usr/bin/ld: eval.o: relocation R_X86_64_32S against `.text' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC
eval.o: could not read symbols: Bad value
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status


So I saw the -fPIC indeed wasn't there, so I modified the Makeconf to include -fPIC, but it still failed with the same error. I also tried -fpic install, no help.


I am using CentOS 6.2 x86_64.
