Thanks for the advice; blindingly simple. I was foxed by the fact that the R-forge linux 'builds' ran successfully with warning but not error.

Regret that I couldn't provide R version detail, but the problem was the build at the r-forge end and not my own installed version of R; I could only tell you what the R-forge log told me.

Don't have an empty 'src' directory: that is not a valid source package.

And please do tell us the version of R as per the posting guide. I am

guessing 2.12.2 here.
