CRAN has Debian packages of R itself up to version 1.8.1 -- so an upgrade of
R itself to an almost recent version may help in getting SparseM built.

I had promised to try building 1.9.0 for the Debian stable release, but have
not found time to do so. If someone wants to step in, it would certainly be
appreciated by the users of Debian 'stable'.

Hopefully we'll get to making most of CRAN available that way, but it may
only be for the testing / unstable release branches.
