maketools: Exploring and Testing the Toolchain and System Libraries

Helper functions that interface with the system utilities to learn about the local build environment. Lets you explore 'make' rules to test the local configuration, or query 'pkg-config' to find compiler flags and libs needed for building packages with external dependencies. Also contains tools to analyze which libraries that a installed R package linked to by inspecting output from 'ldd' in combination with information from your distribution package manager, e.g. 'rpm' or 'dpkg'.
