As of today's commit r72375 all packages with native-routine 
registration of C or Fortran routines need to be reinstalled in R-devel 
(and that include some of the recommended packages in R itself which 
will not be reinstalled via make dependencies, so we advise a clean 
rebuild of R).

We try to avoid such things, but now is a least bad time (before binary 
packages for pre-3.4.0 are built in earnest, although CRAN Windows ones 
have been available for a while and will be rebuilt now).

Packages aster2 used undocumented/defunct fields and is overdue for 
update: AFIAWK all other CRAN/BioC packages can be reinstalled.
