I have been able to get a 32-bit build, easily, with R-3.1.3, and I 
think also with R-3.2.2. But the 64-bit builds have not been 
straightforward. Unusual and/or unexpected messages.
As a lot of packaging changes have been made - noteably the removal of 
several libraries that must now come from the system - make me think 
that focusing on the R-devel branch is more relevant.

However, I should probably revisit R-3.2.2!

Yes, I have been using this - and it helps.
