[Rd] Mac and Windows binaries of rJava broken for R-devel?

Here is a problem we see with the Mac and Windows binaries of rJava (0.9-3) currently available on CRAN for R-devel (i.e. under bin/macosx/leopard/contrib/2.16/ and bin/windows/contrib/2.16/):

   > library(rJava)
   > .jinit("gaggle/inst/jars/gaggleRShell.jar")    Error in .Call("R_do_new_object", ClassDef, PACKAGE = "base") :      "R_do_new_object" not available for .Call() for package "base"

The same code works fine with R-devel on Linux and the same version of rJava, or with R-2.15 on all platforms and the same version of rJava (Mac or Windows binaries installed from CRAN).

The binaries currently available on CRAN for R-devel seem to predate some important changes in R-devel with respect to the exposure of some .Call entry points. Could it be that those binaries just need to be rebuilt with a more recent version of R-devel?

FWIW, we have a few packages in the development version of Bioconductor that are affected by this issue.

Thanks in advance,
