[Rd] building r-devel

  I'm sure I'm being an absolute bonehead (again), but can someone suggest what I might be doing wrong?

 Trying to build latest r-devel on Ubuntu 10.04; as recommended in various places, trying to build it in a separate build directory (since starting to compose this e-mail I've found that it works if I build in the original source directory [as disrecommended], so this has become a less urgent question, but I'm still curious what I'm doing wrong). I configure, make (see details below), eventually get to "/usr/bin/install: cannot create regular file `../../include/Rinternals.h': No such file or directory make[2]: *** [Rinternals.ts] Error 1".

  Any thoughts about what's going on here or what I can do to further diagnose the problem?

  thanks
    Ben Bolker
