Re: [Rd] location of Sweave.sty in R devel (2010-06-15 r52280)

For some time I have had to add R to the tex paths:

export TEXINPUTS="~/texmf/tex/latex:$RHOME/share/texmf:" export BSTINPUTS="~/texmf/bibtex/bst:$RHOME/share/texmf:"

to get vignettes to build. Not sure if I am still suppose to need to do that, but the symptom looks the same.
