| my bad. sorry.
| on ubuntu 12.10 i did a checkout of the 2.15.2 tag
sudo apt-get build-dep r-base
which will install what the distro itself uses to build the package.
Also look into './configure --help' to learn about different aspects of the
build which you can turn on or off. I keep a little shell script with my
prefered configuration to create a local build of r-devel from SVN.
