Hmm, yes indeed; the link (on the SCM web page) goes to the
"build log" instead of to the zip file,
and the bin/windows/contrib/2.6/ or current/ directory is
completely empty.

===> a bug in the R-forge setup (or maintenance or ...),
     and I think we've seen the problem before.

--> CC'ing one of the R-forge maintainers..
