The following are notes for myself.

I like to use the bleeding edge version of R:

svn checkout https://svn.r-project.org/R/trunk/ r-devel
cd r-devel
./tools/rsync-recommended
## use the following to update sources: svn update
## pre-reqs
sudo apt-get build-dep r-base
#sudo apt-get install gcc g++ gfortran libreadline-dev libx11-dev xorg-dev
#sudo apt-get install texlive texinfo
./configure
make
sudo make install
