Some very minor things:

- typo R-admin manual, section 2.8, fourth sentence beginning "This will 
find build...", should read "This will build..."?

- typo in src/library/compiler/man/compile.Rd, line 35: 
"\item{ascii}{logical; should the compiled file be saved with in ascii" 
should read "...saved in ascii..."?

My build and test was successful (on a very common platform 
x86-64/Ubuntu). Typescript here:

Cheers to another release,
