Changing value of "inferior-S+6-program-name"

how do I change the value of "inferior-S+6-program-name".  I am running, or
trying to run, S+6 on Sun-Solaris.  I have this in my ".emacs" file.

(require 'ess-site)
(add-hook 'ess-mode-hook
   (function (lambda()
            (setq-default inferior-S+6-program-name
             (setq ess-ask-for-ess-directory nil)
            (setq ess-directory nil)
            (setq ess-execute-in-process-buffer t)
            (make-local-variable 'comment-indent-function)
            (setq-default comment-indent-function 'ess-comment-indent)
            (fset 'run-s "\C-x2\M-xS\C-m")
            (global-set-key "\M-s" 'run-s)         ; ESC-s runs "run-s" which starts S
            (setq ess-source-directory

But when I do C-h v <Enter> inferior-S+6-program-name <Enter> I get:

inferior-S+6-program-name's value is

*Program name for invoking an inferior ESS with S+6() for Unix.

You can customize this variable.

Defined in `ess-cust'.

And, of course, when I try to invoke Splus I get and error that the "Splus6" program is
not found.  I'd rather not change the value in "ess-cust" to keep upgrades simpler.

Thanks for your support,
