[Rd] properly reporting compile bugs

A while ago I decided to simply download and install every package on CRAN (disk space is cheap these days...). In the process, I kept loose track of which packages generated one or more 'compilation errors' during the install process (machine runs 64-bit Fedora 8, gcc 4.1 etc. etc). Most of the errors seemed to occur in packages I have little need for at present, but as a courtesy, I thought it might be helpful to report these 'errors' - but, how, and to whom (package maintainer)? Is there a preferred (official) mechanism for this? A pointer to the relevant webpage would be more than sufficient.

Some of the errors or lib dependencies, which are perhaps not generally useful to report. But some are outright code errors - either syntax problems, or deprecated bits of C and Fortran.

Thanks in advance...
