just for information:
On Suse 10.3 x86
> make check
if configure was called with --without-recommended-packages
for the latest beta.
The problem I stumbled upon is located in utlis. Here comes the relevant part
of utils-Ex.Rout.fail in R-2.7.0/tests/Examples
> ### ** Examples
> glmout <- capture.output(example(glm))
Fehler in .find.package(package, lib.loc, verbose = verbose) :
there is no package called 'MASS'
Calls: capture.output ... eval.with.vis -> eval.with.vis -> <Anonymous> -> .find.package
Seems tests using recommended packages aren't disabled, even if given --without-recommended-packages.
May be it's by design, i.e. make check shall only be run with recommended packages,
may be it's a bug(let).
