[Rd] paste0 bug in install.packages() - leopard installer?

I get the following:

> install.packages("abind", repos="http://cran.fhcrc.org", type="source") trying URL 'http://cran.fhcrc.org/src/contrib/abind_1.4-0.tar.gz' Content type 'application/x-gzip' length 19642 bytes (19 Kb) opened URL

downloaded 19 Kb

The downloaded packages are in

        '/private/tmp/RtmpiZoTMy/downloaded_packages' Warning message:
In install.packages("abind", repos = "http://cran.fhcrc.org", type = "source") :   installation of package 'abind' had non-zero exit status

This is with a clean install of the R-devel package installer from http://r.research.att.com (sessionInfo() below). It only seems to be triggered by the type="source" flag.
I think the problem may be with the installer, as this problem does not occur with the same revision of R-devel built from source on the same machine.
Incidentally, this problem doesn't occur with R-devel installed via the installer on a Lion machine but does occur on two different Leopard machines.
