Let me clarify that a bit: We're not forbidding people to try, or help each other with trying. It's just that R Core members have tried and failed to make a satisfactorily working build and at some point decided not to even try any more. So you're on your own. 

(I seem to recall that there is some lurking nastiness. If you manage to get something running, make very sure that R passes its "make check-all" self-tests before you release it on unsuspecting users!)
