[R] R with no gui

I have an old IBM Thinkpad 701 that has a 340MB disk and a 486 CPU that's
not good for much anymore, so I thought I'd install R on it and make it a
little useful. I went to *tremendous* pains to upgrade Linux on it without X so
there would be some room to put R. But having done that I find that the binary
is R.X11 and it's looking for (but can't find) libSM.so, which is ordinarily in
/usr/X11R6/lib. I tried to fool it by running it as R --gui=none, but it was
too smart (or too dumb) to be taken in by that trick. So, is there any way I can
get this to run without X?
