Thanks Tom.

It looks like the new RPM has not yet hit the mirrors, so I got it directly from Koji at:

http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=23465

I installed:

  diffutils-2.8.1-19.fc8.i386.rpm

I'll run the full make check-all in a bit (takes over an hour), but for a quick check, I ran:

$ make test-Reg
running regression tests
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/marcs/R.Files/SourceCode/SVN/tests'

running code in 'reg-tests-1.R' ... OK
running code in 'reg-tests-2.R' ... OK

comparing 'reg-tests-3.Rout' to './reg-tests-3.Rout.save' ... OK make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/marcs/R.Files/SourceCode/SVN/tests'

So at least the aforementioned issue has been resolved.

I added a comment to the above Bugzilla report, confirming that the -19 version seems to resolve the problem.

If anything else pops up, I'll post back.

Thanks again,

Marc
