Re: [Rd] problem building R from svn repo

Before make'ing you need to get the recommended packages. I do (with your paths)
../svn/tools/sync-recommended
../svn/tools/sync-recommended

You should not run configure or make with sudo. If you need to install system-wide, you only need to run make install under sudo, like
./configure
make
sudo make install
