[Bioc-devel] xps build problem on veracruz2

Hi Christian,

The CRAN folks are currently experimenting with clang 4.0.0 for
producing the Mac binaries of R and CRAN packages so we are using
the same on veracruz2. This is a version of clang that is ahead of
what's in XCode 8.x or XCode 7.x. So I guess that means we'll have
to compile ROOT from source on veracruz2.

BTW any reason not to make xps work with ROOT 6?
