Sorry to bother you, but I have a problem installing R-2.3.0 from source. 
'configure' and 'make' produce no error, and the R executable seems to run
fine (particularly, R --version does work), but 'make install' fails with
the following error message :

% sudo make install
make[1]: Nothing to be done for `install'.
make[1]: Nothing to be done for `install'.
installing doc ...
help2man: can't get `--version' info from ../bin/R
make[1]: *** [R.1] Error 22
make: *** [install] Error 1

R-2.2.1 compiles and installs without problem. Using MacOS 10.4.6 on a
powerMac G5 with XCode 2.2.1.
