No problem here - Matrix 1.0-11 and R-devel build just fine with your flags (tested on Ubuntu 12.10, x86_64).

If in doubt, please remove R-devel and checkout a fresh copy. Also FWIW it's a bad practice to build inside the sources - it often causes all sorts of problems when you try to track the sources and stale files are probably what's hitting you.

FWIW: This is likely not the problem you're mentioning, but some recent gcc versions break and LTO is also known to cause issues depending on the compiler version, so tread lightly on the cutting edge.
