I did not realize this distinction exists. I am sorry about the
misleading report. I followed the link for "3.3.3 release candidates"
and didn't expect that directory to contain tarballs for 3.4.0, too. In
hindsight, that should have been obvious from the different file names,
I suppose. Thank you for the clarification.
I re-ran the build and test suite with the correct tarball,
R-rc_2017-02-28_r72286.tar.gz, and the result looks different indeed.
With that version, I get a test suite error in reg-tests-1c from
"tests". I'm citing the relevant bit from "reg-tests-1c.Rout.fail":

This happens in the --without-recommended-packages style build. Not sure
whether this is relevant.
The sessionInfo() output looks as follows:

| Platform: x86_64-pc-linux-gnu (64-bit)
