I just did `svn up' on the R development sources, switched to the build
directory (I build R out of tree), ran make, and got this:

make[6]: Entering directory '/home/steve/build/r-devel/src/library/tools/src'
../../../../library/tools/libs/tools.so is unchanged
make[6]: Leaving directory '/home/steve/build/r-devel/src/library/tools/src'
make[5]: Leaving directory '/home/steve/build/r-devel/src/library/tools/src'

I then did `make clean', ran configure and make again, and got the same
failure.  Is this a known issue and is there a fix?
