I am not particularly aware of the specificity of the Mac OS X port of R, but I've
been compiling it on linux, IRIX and OSF... and for none of these system I had to
be in the directory R/lib/R/bin. You certainly have to be at the root of the
freshly uncompressed and untared R.
Are you really willing to compile R, or rather only install it ? In the later
case, you may want to install an already compiled version (available for your
OS)... check at http://cran.r-project.org/
