[ESS] build problem

However, I now get this message from the build:


In toplevel form:

ess-gretl.el:40:1: Warning: Package cl is deprecated

Eager macro-expansion failure: (wrong-number-of-arguments (3 . 4) 2)

Eager macro-expansion failure: (wrong-number-of-arguments (3 . 4) 2)

ess-gretl.el:40:1: Error: Wrong number of arguments: (3 . 4), 2

make[1]: *** [ess-gretl.elc] Error 1

make: *** [all] Error 2

ess-18.10.2 %

I get this error when I try to build with 'make', but I also get the
'(wrong-number-of-arguments (3 . 4)  2)' when I don't try to build and just
use (require 'ess-r-mode). This is emacs 28 on a Mac.

I have always found the elisp debugger a little mysterious, so I am not
sure I am reading this correctly. But I wonder if this is right on line 560
of ess-r-package.el:

559 (defalias 'ess-toggle-developer 'ess-developer)
560 (define-obsolete-function-alias 'ess-r-devtools-check-package-buildwin

I think the error says that this macro needs 3 or 4 args, but it seems only
to have two. Anyway, adding a third argument seems to make it work, but I
don't know what that third argument should be.

Thank you,
