Sorry, forgot to say that this isn't apt-get get'able.

Possibly, but someone has to tell me how to build Packages* and Releases*

In this case, could you just fetch the .diff.gz by hand and apply it to
r-base_2.2.1.orig.tar.gz by hand?

I also forgot to show the draft changelog, now below.

r-base (2.2.1-3) unstable; urgency=low

  * Re-wrote parts of debian/* to take advantage of recent upstream changes
    permitting installation of (most) files outside of /usr/lib/R;
  * debian/rules: Use configure options 
      --datadir=/usr/share/R/share and 
    as well as 'make install' targets
      rsharedir, rincludedir, and rdocdir
  * debian/r-{base-html.{files,dirs}, doc-pdf.{files,links},
    updated accordingly to refer to /usr/share/R/* instead of /usr/lib/R
  * Architecture-independent files of r-base-core (apart from the actual
    default packages below /usr/lib/R/library/) now reside below
    /usr/share/R					(Closes: #300765)
  * debian/control: Added Build-Depends: for libx11-dev, libxt-dev, x-dev
    (though the existing Build-Depends on tcl/tk effectively cover this).
    Credits for the suggestion go to the xlibs-split-check script .

Hell, there are no rules here - we're trying to accomplish something.
