Does ess (>= 5.3.10) now require R ?

sorry to be late to all of these threads.
I've just now committed a patch that hopefully fixes the problem
that ess has become properly compilable only when at least one
version of R was available on the system.
Indeed, it's been mea culpa stemming from a minor reorganization
and I also have left there
a three line comment with "FIXME" about the subject.
