configure and make run OK, but make check failed
for R version 2.5.1 RC (2007-06-26 r42068) on graphics with error:

  > ## The following two examples use latin1 characters: these may not
  > ## appear correctly (or be omitted entirely).
  > plot(1:10, 1:10, main = "text(...) examples\n~~~~~~~~~~~~~~",
  +      sub = "R is GNU Â, but not  ...")
  Error in title(...) : conversion failure in 'mbcsToSbcs'
  Execution halted

The whole tests/Examples/graphics-Ex.Rout.fail is at

The end of make check report is:
