Hi all

I just downloaded IBrokers from http://code.google.com/p/ibrokers  using
svn and have tried to install it by first creating a file called
"IBrokers_fromsvn.tar.gz" and then doing the usual installation from R

> install.packages("~/sorencompile/IBrokers_fromsvn.tar.gz")
Warning in install.packages("~/sorencompile/IBrokers_fromsvn.tar.gz") :

IBrokers version 0.2-7: (alpha)
Implementing API Version 9.62

This software comes with NO WARRANTY.  Not intended for production use!
See ?IBrokers for details
Error in namespaceExport(ns, exports) :
  undefined exports: twsFutureOpt, twsFOP

Warning message:
In install.packages("~/sorencompile/IBrokers_fromsvn.tar.gz") :
  installation of package
'/home/leaf/sorencompile/IBrokers_fromsvn.tar.gz' had non-zero exit

Q: Is this installation failing because I am missing some essential
dependencies (unlikely but possible) or is it in the way I created the
package file ? Or should I be using a different source repository for
getting the latest IBrokers package alltogether ?

Thanks for some hints.
