I'm a little worried that this warning might suggest that there is
something wrong with the SHLIBEXT.  Does dynamic loading work?  If
not, maybe you can try

cpp -I<wherever R lives>/src/include test.c

with test.c containing just the two lines between the dashes:

#include "config.h"

and see what the last line looks like; on RH 6.1 it is
