Yes, that is what I refered to via "long double issue on powerpc". Without a
URL but it is the same issue (in the sense of that architecture being "very
different"); it simply is no longer the same issue of needing the #define to
compile. But the diffferent nature of powerpc now bite's R own 'compiler'
package.  R Core is on it; I may avoid it in a quicker fix by disabling long
double support on just this platform (til we have a better fix).
