I had solved the problem myself.
I found that the problem was caused by VMware. After re-installing vmware-tools, the problem disappeared... Furthermore, the issue has nothing to do with xz software. I had uninstalled xz on my system and the "make check" still passed all test.
If you are using VMware to run Linux system, you can try re-configure and re-install vmware-tools. Otherwise, there might something wrong with the hardware, such as DRAM. It might be a good idea to find another computer and try again with the same circumstances.

Subject:Re: [R] need help when "make check" R-2.11.1
I've seen the very same error as you trying to build R-2.11.1 on 32-bit Debian 4. On the 64-bit version of the platform it runs its tests just fine. I haven't solved the problem yet on the 32-bit version.
Have you managed to find anything else out yet? No-one seems to have replied to you on the list...
