R script compiles from source, debs available
|Reported by:||wildintellect||Owned by:|
The current way the R script was written pulls source packages from cran and compiles them. deb packages are available now for most packages,and this could potentially save a lot of time in the build. But we need to go through the list and figure out the ubuntu package names, and which ones don't have packages.
Note debs are available by adding a repo like deb http://<my.favorite.cran.mirror>/bin/linux/ubuntu jaunty/
