Note: I posted a similar message to R-sig-debian yesterday because I
assumed it was a Debian issue, received response that it it may be more
appropriate for r-devel since it involves building from the svn version.
As of Oct 21, we are running into a build failure when trying to
compile the development version of R from the svn repository. The
problem still persists as of Revision:64096:
We are running:
./configure && make -j4 distclean && ./configure && make -j4
[lots of normal compile output not shown...]
building/updating vignettes for package 'utils' ...
Error: running Sweave on vignette
failed with message:
<text>:1:1: unexpected '|'
make: *** [vignettes-lattice] Error 1
make: Leaving directory
make: *** [vignettes] Error 2
The same vignette compiles without error on the same machine using the
stable release version of R (which we also build from source with same
Dirk reported yesterday that he was unable to reproduce the problem on
r-devel svn "..Using Ubuntu 13.04, current"
Does anyone have suggestions on how I might debug this further to
determine if this is an issue with Sweave, or something with our system
configuration which would impact one build and not the other? When I
diff the files in utils I see quite a few changes to Sweave between the
stable and devel branches, but I'm not sure how to interpret them.
thanks for your help,
