The thing is that even I didn't specify 'enable-shlib', I still get
libR.so but not libR.a, I must missed something here.
Please have a look at the logs below:

%cd /disk/hopper/projects/class/cse514/R-1.6.2/
%make distclean
%./configure --prefix=/disk/hopper/projects/class/cse514/R-1.6.2/
%cd lib/R/bin
BATCH    LINK   REMOVE  Rd2txt  Rdindex  Sd2Rd  config   libtool
COMPILE  R      Rcmd    Rdconv  Rprof    build  f77      pager
INSTALL  R.bin  Rd2dvi  Rdiff   SHLIB    check  libR.so  texi2dvi

%cd /disk/hopper/projects/class/cse514/R-1.6.2
