Fails To Build From Source (Linux, Debian, slang)
Then please blame me for not translating, rather than Samuel who used it in a
context where it is understood --- the Debian bug tracking system.
As for the bug, not sure what my best course of action is. I generally
refrain from making Debian's R materially different from other systems. I
also doubt we any users of R on the Hurd.
So Samuel, and for now just for argument's sake, how about if we skip
building R on the Hurd?
Hell, there are no rules here - we're trying to accomplish something.
