With newest R devel

R Under development (unstable) (2012-01-10 r58085)
Platform: amd64-portbld-freebsd10.0 (64-bit)
attached base packages:
[1] stats     graphics  grDevices utils     datasets  methods   base

I get the following error when I try to build and install lubridate from 
sources on FreeBSD 10.0-CURRENT (amd64):

#R CMD INSTALL lubridate_0.2.6.tar.gz

Do you have any idea what is going on here?

Thanks in advance,
