Hi Niko,
I did this two weeks ago, but it turns out one of the failures (run/switches.t)
is important, as it reveals that `perl -pi -e ... /tmp/foo` is broken, which in
turn causes r-base-core's postinst to fail. I've tracked this down and sent a
patch upstream[1]; could you please apply this to the packaging?
