Somebody else had written separately about this before, and so have I a couple of months ago. I assumed this will be fixed before the next R. Since R 3.0 is supposedly only 6 weeks away, even if it is fixed now it doesn't leave much room for testing. 

Anyway neither Matrix 1.0-11 (current) nor 1.0-9 (sept 2012) build with current R trunk.  The  last time it did was 1. 0-9 on 3rd october over 4 months ago. So it appears to be due to change inside r trunk in sept or early oct.

If it matters, here is what r trunk built with:
 ./configure --enable-memory-profiling --enable-strict-barrier --enable-byte-compiled-packages --with-valgrind-instrumentation=2 --enable-lto
