Thank you all for the comments and suggestions!

I got the link from Garbor to work, but that is the old r-travis approach
(using C). I tried the same approach with native R Travis build but
unfortunately it did not work. So I contacted Jim Hester and he told me
that they are now actively working with implementing multiple R versions in
the native R builds.
