It is unexpected. Is it new in 2.0.1 beta? You have told us your kernel,
not your distro. This looks like a bug, but not in R.

It's what it is documented to do:
gannet% R CMD config --help
Usage: R CMD config [options] [VAR]
Get the value of a basic R configure variable VAR which must be among
those listed in the 'Variables' section below, or the header and
library flags necessary for linking against R.
-h, --help print short help message and exit
-v, --version print version info and exit
All the 'R CMD foo' tools do that.
If you want the R version, that is 'R --version'.
