I have uploaded a Debian package r-base_0.61.0-2_i386.deb to the
incoming directory at ftp.ci.tuwien.ac.at. This package is built
against libc5, not libc6. Turns out that was a bit more complicated
than I had hoped.
I have also created an RPM file for the same binary distribution and
will upload that shortly as r-base-0.61.0-2.i386.rpm. I enclose some
information regarding the two packaged versions below. Notice that
the rpm query indicates that not only is there a call to
/usr/local/bin/perl but there appears to be vestigial @PERL@ calls in
some of the scripts somewhere in the tree. It may just be that I have
not cleared out all the foo.in files - I'll try to check.
Why is this release 2 of the Debian package you ask? Well I found out
after I uploaded release 1 to master.debian.org that I had botched the
renaming of the original tar file. I think this time it is ok. It
doesn't affect the binary package. It only affects people who are
going to try to build the package from the sources.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all.

Description: `GNU S' - A language and environment for statistical computing.
R is described by its authors as "not unlike" S, which is a language
developed at Bell Laboratories for statistical computing and graphics.
It provides support for a variety of statistical and graphical analyses.
R is a true computer language which contains a number of control-flow
constructions for iteration and alternation. It allows users to add
additional functionality by defining new functions. Fortran and C
code can be linked and called at run time.
S is the statistician's Matlab and R is to S what Octave is to Matlab.
