Packaging Xtensor.R

This section may be of interest to people working on packaging Xtensor.R for Linux distributions or other general-purpose packaging systems.

The Xtensor R package depends on the xtensor-r C++ header-only library.

The vendoring can be prevented by passing the --novendor option to the configure script, which can be passed to the R CMD INSTALL command in the following way:

R CMD INSTALL --build --configure-args='--novendor'
