Hello R users and developers,

I had a problem when I tried to install  the last version of R-devel.
I know that this R version is an unstable version and that this problem 
may be irrelevant.
I am  maintaining a R package  thus I check if this package can be 
installed with the development version.
( Everinthing is fine with the R-patched)

The details are the following:

My machine:
System:  SunOS 
Release: 5.9
Kernel ID : Generic_117171-07
Machine : sun4u
Processor :sparc
Platform : SUNW Sun-Fire-880

R version
 2.3.0 Under development (unstable)

Revision: 37414

I did not found any report about this problem in the R-devel archives . 
Should I wait and try a next version of R-devel?

thanks for your help, I hope this mail is not irrelevant
