It is not actually necessary to install R: see the R-admin manual.
It is a very bad idea to install to use the source tree. Just build in a
directory != srcdir, as the R-admin manual explains.
You have read _all_ the R-admin manual, haven't you? Just in case you
haven't, please do as you are asked in INSTALL ...
The main source of information on installation is the `R Installation
and Administration Manual', an HTML copy of which is available as file
`doc/html/R-admin.html'. Please read that before installing R. But
if you are impatient, read on but please refer to the manual to
resolve any problems.
