[Bioc-devel] problem when building oligo on wilson2

I pushed an early report of the builds today that don't include Windows 
because those machines haven't completed the build process yet. For 
today's report oligo isn't building on wilson2 (Linux), pitt (Mac OS X 
Tiger), pelham (Mac OSX Leopard).


because of the error

Error: processing vignette 'oligo.Rnw' failed with diagnostics:
 chunk 3 (label=crlmm)
Error in crlmm(fullFilenames, outputDir, verbose = FALSE) :
  could not find function "requireAnnotation"
Execution halted

This missing symbol could be masking the more subtler problem you 
mentioned, but at least the current error should be easy to correct.
