On my machine, which is running R 2.12.1 on OS X 10.6.6 with nothing
remarkable changed (e.g. GCC is at 4.2.1), Rcpp_0.9.1.tar.gz builds &
tests & installs fine from the source release.

The last part of the output (where it differs from the Rcpp-00check.html
above) is:

* checking tests ...
** running tests for arch Œi386¹
  Running ŒdoRUnit.R¹
** running tests for arch Œx86_64¹
  Running ŒdoRUnit.R¹
* checking package vignettes in Œinst/doc¹ ... OK
* checking PDF version of manual ... OK

R CMD CHECK .  425.14s user 57.08s system 98% cpu 8:07.23 total

I noticed that on OS X the check server is using "r-prerel".  Why's that?
What version of R does that mean?
