Hi ,

Yes you are right the config.guess script inside RPostgreSQL_0.6-2.tar.gz has 
time stamp of 2011-10-19. But changing this is also giving error " ERROR: 
'configure' exists but is not executable -- see the 'R Installation and 
Administration Manual' ".

Just to note: The same package with same config.guess is getting installed on 
other system.

The problems: To me it looks like hostinfo, /bin/universe  and other info are 
not getting any value during installation, so giving error. Below is error msg. 
see line between
config.guess timestamp = 2011-10-19

Are you updating the config.guess script inside the tar file? If not, every 
time you unpack the distribution tar file, you will get the old version of
