[R] update.packages() doesn't work anymore

For some reason, update.packages(), one of the greatest features of R, doesn't
work anymore (perhaps since I upgraded to 1.2.1?). It downloads the new
packages, but when it tries to build them, I get this message:
WARNING: ignoring environment value of R_HOME
/var/tmp/R-base-root/usr/lib/R/bin/Rcmd: No such file or directory
I save the downloaded packages and then do R INSTALL <pkgname> at the command
line, and it works fine. I tried setting lib=/usr/lib/R and also the R_HOME
environment var, but that didn't help. What am I doing wrong?
I'm running R 1.2.1 on RedHat Linux 7 (intel).

I looked out my window, and saw Kyle Pettys' car upside down,
then I thought 'One of us is in real trouble'.
