I respectfully decline.

R builds fine on every Ubuntu system, and always has.  No bug in R, or
Ubuntu, or Debian (which would be cup of tea). There is the distro package
(which may be older if an older distro like 16.04 is used) and there always
is a current package at CRAN based on Michael's build of my packages. Always.

Of course a lot of people also locally build R, or maybe R-devel. There is no
general issue here as best as I can tell.

My brief reading suggests that this is the case.

Nothing good comes off moving files around in /usr as was done.  It creates
local non-standard circumstances. You cannot expect standardized build to
anticipate each and every possible non-standard modification.

This discussion is still on the wrong list too.
