Trying to build a Debian snapshot of R-alpha based on last night's tarball,
it fails with what looks like a missing -lm linking directive:

pbuilder: Failed autobuilding of package

I checked the svn logs, as it doesn't looks like this was addressed since the
tarball was rolled.  Am I the only one to have this happen?


Hell, there are no rules here - we're trying to accomplish something.
