I was not planning on supporting r-pdl, as I have not ever used R, and
I wouldn't know where to start. However, I did notice that there are
a number of files under Lib/R which are not in MANIFEST. I'll probably
leave them there until I run into a problem with them.
By the way, I don't suppose anyone knows why I'd be getting /lib defined
in rpath on some perl .so files? [Looking at perl this should only be
happening if I was running IRIX.]
Is r-pdl important to anyone? I'm concerned about the size of the debian
.diff.gz for pdl, and would hate to waste a lot of time doing something
that no one cares about (or, worse, breaking R support and not finding
out about it).
Is it important that R support be included with PDL?
