I think I've tracked this down, and it seems to be specific to R 1.9.
The 2.0 libR does not include main.
I believe main is present in 1.9 because the link line for libR includes
a reference to "../unix/*.lo". One of those file is the object for
system.c, which includes main.
On reviewing "Writing R Extensions" for 1.9.1, I note there is no
reference in it to an independent programming calling libR.
I saw this with 1.9.1 on Debian and Mac OS X.
