Thanks for confirming -- that is what I was suspecting, little or no change at R's side of this. The problem may be with Debian's "pbuilder" chroot that sets up the build environment. I will contact its author and maintainer.

These are the nightly (in Copenhaguen time) builds provided via         

        http://cran.r-project.org/src/base-prerelease

and I just confirmed the problem with today's svn.37642.
