It does not seem to happen to anyone else, including me on FreeBSD. Is this a completely clean install? src/library/datasets/Makefile definitely installs a NAMESPACE file as part of the mkR1 target, so I would check that you have a src/library/datasets/NAMESPACE file in your sources.

(There was a short window on the 16th when it happened as a commit for src/library/datasets/NAMESPACE was missed at first.)
