I was going to suggest you take this up with the maintainers... but  
you _are_ one of the maintainers.

Here is the output from an attempt to compile from source, version  
0.1.45, with a relatively recent version of R 2.13.0 (but not the most  
recent and I still use Mac OSX 10.5.8). Perhaps its brevity will be  
helpful, and the fact that it seems to identify different error than  
those flagged in the log at CRAN.
