[Rd] 2.7.0 beta (rev 45263) failing 'make vignettes'

Dear list,

On Fedora 8 I downloaded the beta version of R via svn. make and make check-all worked fine, but make vignettes is failing with:

make[1]: Entering directory `/home/gavin/R/2-7-patched/build/src/library' building/updating vignettes for package 'grid' ... processing 'displaylist.Snw'
/usr/bin/texi2dvi: pdflatex exited with bad status, quitting. Error in texi2dvi(texfile, pdf = TRUE, quiet = TRUE) :   running 'texi2dvi' on 'displaylist.tex' failed Calls: <Anonymous> -> texi2dvi
Execution halted
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/gavin/R/2-7-patched/build/src/library'

If I attempt to manually use texi2dvi --pdf on that file I see that texi2dvi cannot find Sweave.sty:

/usr/bin/texi2dvi: Running pdflatex --file-line-error '././src/library/.vignettes/displaylist.tex' ... This is pdfeTeXk, Version 3.141592-1.21a-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.4)  file:line:error style messages enabled. entering extended mode

! LaTeX Error: File `Sweave.sty' not found.

At this point if I tell texi2dvi where to find Sweave.sty, the vignettes builds.

Is this intentional and I have not done something I should have? (I did check the relevant section of the installation manual.) Past versions have built vignettes correctly.
