Yup, see https://buildd.debian.org/build.cgi?pkg=r-base which reports details
on the build of the snapshot I uploaded yesterday. Summary state is:

(Intel 32-bit not listed as my local upload is not rebuilt on the build
servers; we will do that 'eventually' but so far we don't.)
(And 'maybe-successful' is the strongest wording here meaning absence of
failure which does not by itself presence of success ;-)
So for anyone running Debian testing and willing to fetch this from unstable,
especially on the more esoteric platforms (s390 anyone? ;-): please do so.
CRAN ports are usually not built; if you want Ubuntu or Debian backports
tweak Michael's or Johannes' arm...
