[Rd] R-patched Make Check Fails on reg-tests-1.R on linux and OS X

Dear Developers,

I've been playing around with compiling R on my Debian Linux machine (dual Athlon 1.4ghz) and my OS X machine (dual G5). I'm emailing now because reg-tests-1.R fails during make check on my debian machine using gcc-3.4, and on my OS X machine using gcc-3.3. I am using r-patched updated via svn today (Updated to revision 33075.)

Here are some details:

**Using gcc-3.4 on debian:
gcc-3.4 (GCC) 3.4.4 20041218 (prerelease) (Debian 3.4.3-6)

wes:/home/temp/R/r-patched/tests# tail reg-tests-1.Rout.fail

> ## automatic row.names can be number-like, MM, 2004-11-26
> d0 <- data.frame(x=1:3, y=pi*2:0)
> row.names(d0)[3] <- c("01.00")
> write.table(d0, (tf <- tempfile()))
> d <- read.table(tf)
> ## gave error ("duplicate row.names") in 2.0.1
> stopifnot(all.equal(d,d0))
> unlink(tf)

**Using gcc-3.3 on debian works fine (passes all make check). gcc (GCC) 3.3.5 (Debian 1:3.3.5-5)

**Using gcc-3.3 on OS X.
gcc (GCC) 3.3 20030304 (Apple Computer, Inc. build 1671)

More info on my OS X build:
./configure --with-blas='-framework vecLib' --with-lapack --with-aqua

--with-x --with-tcl-config=/Library/Frameworks/Tcl.framework/tclConfig.sh
--with-tk-config=/Library/Frameworks/Tk.framework/tkConfig.sh
--enable-R-shlib TCLTK_LIBS='-framework Tcl -framework Tk'
TCLTK_CPPFLAGS='-I/Library/Frameworks/Tcl.Framework/Headers -I/Library/Frameworks/Tk.Framework/Headers' --with-recommended

g77 is version 3.4 downloaded from hpc.sf.net. GNU Fortran (GCC) 3.4.2

 echo $PATH
/usr/local/bin:/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/sw/bin:/sw/sbin:/usr/local/pvm3/lib:/usr/local/pvm3/bin/DARWIN

and, to prevent it from using stuff in the fink directory:

CPPFLAGS='-I/usr/local/include'

Here is the output where make check fails:

running regression tests
running code in 'reg-tests-1.R' ...make[3]: *** [reg-tests-1.Rout] Error 1 make[2]: *** [test-Reg] Error 2
make[1]: *** [test-all-basics] Error 1
make: *** [check-all] Error 2

Should I be very concerned about this? I tend to mostly use my OS X machine since the Linux box is about 4 years old.

I hope this information is helpful --- I'm sorry if this is something obvious! (I found some posts from last summer about problems with gcc-3.4, which might explain the problems with gcc-3.4 on linux, but I didn't find anything obvious about gcc-3.3 on the Mac).

Thanks so much for all of your work!!

Best,

Jake
