Dear package developers, We've recently received an email letting us know that our package rvinecopulib ( https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/rvinecopulib/index.html) would be removed from CRAN unless the errors from the solaris build were corrected.
Note that the package compile and the unit tests pass on the other test platforms from CRAN and even a local R devel build with ASAN / UBSAN sanitizers. On solaris, the package compiles but a segfault is produced by one unit test for a reason that we still don't understand. To replicate the issue, I tried to mimic CRAN's solaris config ( https://www.stats.ox.ac.uk/pub/bdr/Rconfig/r-patched-solaris-x86) in a virtual machine following the steps in the gist below (based on Jeroen's): https://gist.github.com/tvatter/b2503f03fcd604ff764ffe4b979afcb6 Note that the "--with-readline=no" configure option at the end was added because I got "configure: error: --with-readline=yes (default) and headers/libs are not available" without it. Unfortunately, I then got the "configure: error: a suitable iconv is essential" and could not proceed to build R. I know that I should get GNU iconv as specified in the installation manual, hence the "/opt/csw/bin/pkgutil -y -i libiconv_dev" in the gist above. I verified that iconv is in /opt/csw/lib as expected and I thought that adding /opt/csw/lib to R_LD_LIBRARY_PATH as suggested in the manual would then do the trick, but it does not seem to be the case. Two questions: 1) What did I miss or do wrong? 2) Anyone found a way to replicate solaris CRAN builds to test packages? I tried to use https://builder.r-hub.io/, but some of my package's dependencies fail to install because of udunits2 is missing on their system if I recall correctly.
