There are non-official Ubuntu binary packages made for 2.7.0 by Vincent Goulet 
and Michael Rutter. They are based on the official Debian packages from Dirk 
Eddelbuettel and Doug Bates.
You can find them here:

Note that it is in general a bad idea to mix different builds of r-cran-* so 
try to stick to 2.6.2 or 2.7.0 only.

If you have any problems with these packages, please report them here:

In case you still want to build from source, I highly suggest you use these
