Hi all,

My package does not seem to like Solaris at all :( Now I am getting the 
following build ERROR

"Error in dyn.load(x, as.logical(local), as.logical(now)) : 
         unable to load shared library 
  ld.so.1: R: fatal: relocation error: file 
symbol log2: referenced symbol not found Error: package/namespace load 
failed for 'beadarray'"

Can anyone advise on this please? Is it another problem with the version of 
R on Solaris?

Thanks in advance,
