Yes. All architectures supported by these builder should provide binaries
if and when they had a chance to catch up.

In the meantime just point to the quantal variant. I have R 3.0.0 from
those on 32 and 64 bit Ubuntu.

There was an issue with tcl/tk under raring which needed a different
Build-Depends which is why these are a little behind.  

But it all should catch up.  Michael is doing a very nice job with these
rebuilds based on my Debian packages, and I am a heavy user of this myself.
