        pkgsrc/math/R: Makefile PLIST distinfo
 Log Message:
 Update to R 2.7.2
     o   sprintf() returns elements of the result in UTF-8 when the
         format or any character input has a corresponding element
         declared as UTF-8.  Similarly for paste(), elements of the
         result are in UTF-8 when any input to that element is declared
         as UTF-8.
     o   axis() has new arguments 'col.ticks' and 'lwd.ticks' to allow
         the colour and line width of ticks to be set separately from
         that of the line (e.g. to set one or the other to transparent
         or zero width).
     o   legend() has a new argument 'box.col' to set the colour of the
         enclosing box.
     o   legend() gains a 'xpd' argument to make it easier to place a
         legend in the margins or outer margins.
     o   stripchart() now passes '...' to title() (as well as to
         plot.default() and axis()). (Wish of PR#12202)
     o has new argument 'searchEngine' to go
         directly to the search form: this is needed by users of
         Firefox 3 to workaround a bug in interpreting the search
         results pages.
     o   tools::texi2dvi() has a new argument 'texinputs' to allow the
         TeX and bibtex input paths to be specified (even on MiKTeX).
     o   dev.copy2pdf() gains an 'out.type' argument to allow it to be
         used with cairo_pdf() or quartz(type = "pdf").
     o   poly() has additional checks against user error (as in PR#11243).
     o   The Mac OS quartz() device draws contiguous lines much faster.
     o   A field containing just a sign is no longer regarded as numeric
         (it was on all platforms in 2.7.0, but not on most in earlier
         versions of R).  Similarly, '.' is now always non-numeric.
     o   CITATION files are now read in Latin-1: quite a few were
         failing if used in a multibyte locale such as UTF-8.
     o   The DESCRIPTION file of a package can specify an 'OS_type' field
         as either 'unix' or 'windows' to confine installation to that
         OS type.
     o   HoltWinters() now uses optimize() rather than optim for
         one-parameter problems which should be more reliable (PR#11469).
     o   axis() now respects the setting of par("xpd") when clipping.
     o   The 'factor' method of format() now preserves names, dims and
         dimnames in the same way as for character and numeric inputs.
     o   read.DIF(*, transpose=TRUE) now allows to correctly read DIF files
         produced by some versions of Excel.
     o   The use of unserialize() on character strings is deprecated:
         that was a format used in R < 2.4.0.
     o   The use of embedded nuls in character strings is deprecated:
         They will no longer be allowed in R 2.8.0.
     o   R CMD check checks for possible check directories in the
         sources -- in mid-2008 there were about 20 examples on CRAN.
     o   R CMD build tries harder to clean up the inst/doc directory
         from the remnants of earlier builds.
         It also removes any directories with extension .Rcheck, and
         files .DS_Store and ._* (created by tar on Mac OS X under some
         circumstances: it now sets environment variables to ask for
         such files not to be created by that tar.)
