[R] Compiling R

I have a generally successful compiled R 1.8.0 version installed on a SuSE 9.0 
system.  One frustration however is that the basic keyboard functions of BASH 
have not completely carried through and the up, down, left and right arrow 
keys don't behave as they do on the regular shell command line.  That is no 
command history can be accessed and the cursor cannot be back-spaced over a 
recalled command to edit it.  I expect that I am missing a "--with-" statment 
but I am not certain what it should be.  	Is there any help file that details 
the fine points for compiling R?  INSTALL does not contain the information I 
am interested in.

Thank you,
