Yes, btw,
one recommended way to ``try it out''  apart from the real first


is to run

   make check	(from the same place where you ran "make").

If it fails, please send the relevant info to  R-bugs (not R-help)!

This implicitly even provides a small timing benchmark of how fast R run's
on your machine:

   grep '^Time elapsed:' tests/Examples/*-Ex.Rout
