Paul, the above behavior ``works'' with binary distributions
(we have at least Debian and RedHat for Linux),
but never with source code distributions.
We are following quite a standard approach for source code distributions
## Edit config.site manually if you want special behavior
## configure with arguments if you want....
The only thing missing is a ``proper''
which Kurt and Fritz (;-}) will probably provide for R 0.62
which seems to be due currently for Mid-June or so.
