[Bioc-devel] Rscript on Bioconductor test servers

I have started to use the package Rcpp for simplified usage of C++
components (in the pcaMethods package). To build packages using Rcpp I
need to set the location of Rcpp.h. To do this in a reliable manner I
use a Makevars script containing

PKG_CPPFLAGS = $(shell Rscript -e 'Rcpp:::CxxFlags()')
PKG_LIBS = $(shell Rscript -e 'Rcpp:::LdFlags()')

but this fails on Bioconductors test servers with

make: Rscript: Command not found

Is Rscript not available on the test servers? If so, can we please
have it enabled?
