The issue has already been fixed and that should be reflected in Sunday's build report. Recent emails to R-devel have discussed the problem, which is related to a new toolchain for building windows packages, intended to be used with the soon-to-be-released R-3.3.0.

> Hi,
> I am the author of package GSAR. Just today I noticed that the development
> version 1.5.0 shows a build error under the Windows platform only. This error
> was not there a couple of days ago when I last checked. The error message is
> related to the 'igraph' package:
> Error in base::.Call("R_igraph_make_weak_ref", key, value, finalizer,  :
>  "R_igraph_make_weak_ref" not available for .Call() for package "igraph"
> I'm not sure why this happened now since package 'igraph' (version 1.0.1) was
> not updated since the last release of Bioconductor. If the error is related to
> an update in 'igraph', the build error would have happened under all platforms
> and not only under Windows!
> To make things worse, today is the deadline for packages to pass ''R CMD build''
> and ''R CMD check'' without error.
> Help is appreciated.
