 I just got the latest (March7) tarball from CRAN. 

1).It looks like ".so" 
is still hardwired in the source code. in src/main/platform.h all
"Unix" systems get the ".so" extention. I had to #ifdef hpux and add

2). It picks up readline but history is still inside the comments in
src/include/Platform.h, I had to manually change this in order to get
readline history.

3). Now it builds and installs OK. 

4). library(help = eda) gets me

  Error: No documentation for package `eda'

This seems to be happening because system.file("INDEX", help, lib.loc) 
in library returning NULL. debugging system.file show that
 present <- file.exists(FILES)
if just execute
then it returns TRUE. (I know the help files and INDEX are all out
there). Any idea why this library overall help is not working? Help on 
idividual items is working OK. So are the dynamically loaded libs.
system.file function seems to be different than in 0.63.1.
