Revision 2007-09-10 without a hitch and is in Debian unstable, see

for the build logs (and my embarassing three revisions to get [ for r-cran-* packages ] right).

So if I were you I'd start with (assuming you point to Debian 'sid' aka unstable)

	# apt-get update     
	# apt-get build-dep r-base

to make sure you you have all required packages. You could also rebuild from my sources via

        # apt-get source r-base

or simple install the three-day old binary.

FWIW I also just rebuilt from these sources on Ubuntu Feisty at work (where you need to adjust debian/rules and debian/control as they do not have gcc/g++ 4.2 yet).

Hope this helps, feel free to ask Debian questions on r-sig-debian.

Cheers, Dirk
