Today I downloaded the latest source code release R-2.3.1.tar.gz, and it seems not to contain the VR bundle. After running ./configure I get the following error message:

checking for recommended packages... ./src/library/Recommended/VR_*.tar.gz: No such file or directory
no
configure: error: Some of the recommended packages are missing   Use --without-recommended-packages if this was intentional 39.99u 115.47s 3:02.64 85.1%

There is a soft link to the newest version of bundle under /src/library/Recommended, but the actual bundle is missing:

Of course, this is easy to fix just by downloading and copying the VR bundle to the correct place. But, maybe it could also be included in the latest source code release?
