However the build as of tonight has no problem with make check on the build machine. Did you by any chance forget that Matrix is a recommended package and expected to be available when checking?

Thanks -- looks better again. Now the 'make check' over the included packages
just emits a few NOTE each that other packages needed for crossreference or
checks (such as lattice, MASS, Matrix, ...) are missing (which is expected as
they not part of the Build-Depends as it would create a dependency cycle).

So thumbs up for 3.2.4 next week.
