I tried to install R today and got the following at the first try

rbitmap.c:239: parse error before `jmp_buf'
rbitmap.c:239: warning: no semicolon at end of struct or union
rbitmap.c: In function `my_error_exit':
rbitmap.c:257: dereferencing pointer to incomplete type
rbitmap.c: In function `R_SaveAsJpeg':
rbitmap.c:279: storage size of `jerr' isn't known

after changing the source code (replacing the ';' with a ',' and adding some
of rbitmap.c in lines 239 and 240 it installed correctly.
