That's a general problem with zlib.
Even vanilla R from the repositories doesn't compile.

adalardo commented on 2017-02-14 11:43

Same here

checking if zlib version >= 1.2.5... no
checking whether zlib support suffices... configure: error: zlib library and headers are required

The zlib version installed is 1:1.2.11. I believe the problem is "1:" before official version name.

Excellent, thanks @alexanderp!

Herraiz, thank you for the insight in compiling quantreg and igraph.
I've implemented your suggestion in the ./configure line instead of Makeconf.
It seems that -lifcore and -lifport needed to be included before and after -lm.

Here is the same patch against the current master:

Could you add a patch for Makeconf.in? The patch is the following one:

14c14
< BLAS_LIBS = @BLAS_LIBS@
---
> BLAS_LIBS = @BLAS_LIBS@ -lifcore -lifport

It prevents problems when compiling some R packages. With that change, I was able to install quantreg and igraph. See comment from AnRe005 2016-08-07 09:22

For people struggling with this. If you are a student, you can download and install intel dependencies (intel-compiler-base, intel-fortran-compiler, intel-mkl) for free from here https://software.intel.com/en-us/qualify-for-free-software/student
When you install the latest version, compilers are installed in a different folder, so you have to change the path in line 89 in PKGBUILD
from
/opt/intel/composerxe/linux/bin/compilervars.sh

to
/opt/intel/compilers_and_libraries/linux/bin/compilervars.sh

You will have to source compilervars.sh in bash before running R, otherwise, it won't run (just put it in .bashrc, but know that other compilations will be affected by this).

In addition, intel installer might complain that your gcc and other libs are outdated, but if you have everything installed from core and multilib, you should be fine (I didn't get the -git packages).

Follow-up: it turns out the community license is not meant for compiling software, after all... Too bad I don't know any binary package of r-mkl for Arch Linux.

Thank you, alexanderp!
