As options to R CMD INSTALL as per:

edd at homebud:~/chibud/mm/pictures/tmp> R CMD INSTALL --help
Usage: R CMD INSTALL [options] pkgs
  -h, --help            print short help message and exit
  -v, --version         print version info and exit
                        set arguments for the package's configure script
			(if any)
                        set variables for the configure script (if any)

You may have to use quotes as e.g.

$ R CMD INSTALL --configures-args="--with-fftw-lib=/opt/fftw3" rimage

Hth, Dirk

Those are my principles, and if you don't like them... well, I have others.
