[R-pkg-devel] registering native routines

I assume you followed "Writing R Extension" and the examples given in 
package deSolve (and maybe some other packages).

Am I right that this fixed the i386 notes, but not for x64?

Here I conclude that you tested it on Windows. This is relevant, because 
I remember a recent discussion (maybe on this mailing list), that the 
"register native routines" check can sometimes produce false positives 
on Windows.

Would it be possible for you, to check your package on a recent Linux
