Thanks for the bug report. I will pass it on to R Core.

Hm, I have not seen that. But Doug Bates mentioned something about building

I have never seen this, and am building both locally and remotely.

Don't know, it may. But that does not propagate to what happens inside

Most of the other build systems work, see
The most recent hppa error looks spurious and related to Build-Depends.
Just to confirm, you are building on m68k, correct?
