Hello ...

With a new checkout of R-devel, I'm getting the following error on

Type 'demo()' for some demos, 'help()' for on-line help, or
'help.start()' for a HTML browser interface to help.
Type 'q()' to quit R.

Error in open.connection(con, "rb") : unable to open connection
In addition: Warning message:

".GlobalEnv"       "package:stats"    "package:graphics" "package:utils"   
[5] "Autoloads"        "package:base"    
Warning message: 
package methods in options("defaultPackages") was not found 

This is happening on Linux (RH7.2, RH9.0) and Solaris 8.
