Thanks, Simon. I should have mentioned that as well. Yes, I did "make
rsync-recommended" per Chapter 3 of the manual and that worked without
I first inadvertently had tried to build the 2.16 version in /trunk
and got that "undefined exports" error, then switched to the
/R-2-15-branch when I realized /trunk held the development version.
In between the two svn checkouts, I had tried the source tar ball at
the link R-2.15.1.tar.gz. That terminated much sooner in the build,
which I thought could have resulted from me using 7-Zip on the tar
ball (lacking a windows version of your tar), so I went back to the
subversion checkout method.
