R 0.64.0 on RedHat Linux 5.1

I decided to add a "make check" command in the R RPM spec file
to ensure that R works properly before packaging it up.  I
found (by sabotaging one of the * files) that errors
found by "make check" are ignored and do not cause make to exit
abnormally. This means that there is no way for rpm to know that
the checks have failed, and the RPM package gets built anyway.

I changed this by removing the "-" flag in test-All, as in the
attached patch. I'm sure there was a reason the flag was there,
but it is a problem for me, so I'm submitting this as a bug

# Remove "ignore" flag from test-All so that
