generally, it is not a good idea to install R package as a "super-user".
Please think of all the security risks and havoc that could be caused
(intentionally or unintentionally) by the code that is executed when a
package's Makefile are executed.
For a global (system-wide) installation, it is recommended to use a
special user-id with limited rights except for writing to the directory
where the software goes.
