Bug Description

A bunch of R packages fail autopkgtests with 4.3.0-1, with errors looking like this:

Error in `vectbl_assign(x[[j]], i, recycled_value[[j]])`: DLL requires the use of native symbols

Looking into the upstream code and changelog, this appears to be related to this change:

Attempting to use a character string naming a foreign function entry point in a foreign function call in a package will now signal an error if the packages has called R_forceSymbols to specify that symbols must be used.

I'm not going to be looking into this as I have no experience in R, and I'm expecting things to be sorted out on the Debian side once bookworm is out the doors, so this is mostly for documentation purposes.
