Re: [Rd] syntax error in memory.c when building R-devel on AIX

That statement was added yesterday (not by me) and needed moving up a line. Which version do you have? The current one has

 	    Rboolean success = FALSE;
 	    s = NULL; /* initialize to suppress warning */

and passes all my tests. The previous one had those two lines reversed and worked on gcc (with a warning) but failed on Solaris' cc (and was not legal ISO C90).
