[R] Testing R with pre-release GCC 3.0

I'm in the process of doing some volunteer testing of the pre-release
snapshots of GCC 3.0. I don't have much time to do anything except test the
things I regularly use and throw any gotchas I find over the wall to the
respective teams. One of the "things I regularly use" is, of course, R, and
I have just determined that the R-devel snapshot (downloaded yesterday, 22
May 2001 about 22:00 Pacific Time) does not pass "make check" with the GCC
3.0 20010521 snapshot. The same R-devel code *does* pass "make check" with
the stock Red Hat 7.1 compilers, which are gcc 2.96.81. Is there any
documentation on "make check" that I can use to help narrow this down for
the GCC folks, or do I just have to read the code and figure out what's
happening for myself?
