Hi Duncan,

thanks for helping with the fixes to packages needed for this toolchain 
(and for having UTF-8 as native encoding on Windows). Fixing packages to 
properly declare their dependencies will be useful in general.

And thanks for asking about the missing dependencies, it turns out that 
the checks broke during transition of R-devel to 4.2. I've fixed my 
scripts now and if I got it right, correct results should appear in 
about 1.5 days from now. The numbers were about 10x better before this 

A number of packages will still need fixing. I can help searching the 
logs for the root issues (packages failing for other reasons than 
missing dependencies) once the results are correct again. And I can also 
make the logs downloadable in tarball etc (rather than one-by-one).
