"R CMD check sos" with R 3.3.0 under Mac OS X 10.11.5 ends as
>* checking package dependencies ... ERROR
>Package suggested but not available: ‘RODBC’
>The suggested packages are required for a complete check.
>Checking can be attempted without them by setting the environment
>variable _R_CHECK_FORCE_SUGGESTS_ to a false value.
Unfortunately, "install.packages('RODBC')" says it's only
available in source form. When I attempt to install from sources, it
fails as follows:
>checking for sqlext.h... no
>configure: error: "ODBC headers sql.h and sqlext.h not found"
>ERROR: configuration failed for package ‘RODBC’
>Warning in install.packages :
> installation of package ‘RODBC’ had non-zero exit status
The CRAN checks for RODBC also failed for the same reason
I'm not sure how to set "the environment variable
_R_CHECK_FORCE_SUGGESTS_ to a false value" on my Mac, and I'd rather not
do it permanently. I tried various versions of "R CMD check
_R_CHECK_FORCE_SUGGESTS_=FALSE sos_1.3-9.tar.gz" and "R CMD check
_R_CHECK_FORCE_SUGGESTS_=0 sos_1.3-9.tar.gz", none of which worked.
Somewhere I found a suggestion to try, "R CMD check --as-cran
sos_1.3-9.tar.gz". That also failed for me.
