Hello there,

I have a habit of compiling R-patched and R-devel every few days. Recently, I noticed the following problem:

I downloaded both versions with Revision: 40421, Last Changed Date: 2007-01-09. R-patched compiles with no problem. R-devel compiles fine but when it starts to make PDF documentation it generates the following (tail of the "make distribution" output):

! pdfTeX warning (dest): name{Rfn.survival} has been referenced but does not ex
ist, replaced by a fixed one

Output written on refman.pdf (1447 pages, 6487470 bytes). Transcript written on refman.log.
make[2]: *** [refman.pdf] Error 1
make[1]: *** [manuals] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/andyj/R-devel/src/gnuwin32'
make: *** [distribution] Error 2

It looks like the first version of refman.pdf gets generated fine and something happens when it needs to run makeindex. I tried to look at the Makefile.win in doc/manuals but I cannot see anything obvious there. In any case, the makefiles are quite elabortae and interlinekd, so I probably would not know how to fix them.

I am on Win2000. I compile R using the Cygwin environment, but I have MinGW installed and its executables are first on the search path. I am using MiKTeX and it is up-to-date.

Thanks in advance,


PS. I seem to remember that this happened already a few versions ago.
