[R-pkg-devel] Proper way to cleanup after build third party components?

I've recently submitted my first package on CRAN and now need to make
some improvements
on feedback received from CRAN maintainers.


My question are:

   1. In the process of building package I also need to build some
   third party components, now I use mktemp utility to create temporary
   subdirectory in /tmp/ directory where I build this third party part. I was
   told that according to CRAN packaging policy I should not leave any
   artifacts in /tmp/ after package build. My question is: Is it enough to
   delete this temporary directory in the "cleanup" script?
   2. Is it possible to install cmake on OSX and Solaris build hosts?
