This issue is discussed in 
to which he was referred by the CRAN report.  It fails in the same way

However, before I resubmit the package to CRAN, I would really like to make sure that the updated package passes all checks also on Sparc Solaris.

So, is there anybody out there with access to a Sparc machine running Solaris willing to run 'R CMD check --as-cran' on the updated tarball? Would be very much appreciated!
