[R] Using R-0.65.0 under ESS on Unix

There is a bug in the command-line handling of 0.65.0 under Unix that
may affect some users of R-inferior-mode under ESS, as that sets
--no-readline as the first argument, and any arguments after that are

The fix is simple: delete line 448 of src/unix/sys-common.c (`break;')
and re-compile.

The most used arguments are (I'm told) --vsize and --nsize. I find it more
convenient to set those as environment variables in ~/.Renviron,
using something like

auk% cat ~/.Renviron
