[R] (no subject)

I've been using R for a while under Mac OS X, which thanks to the R  
on OS X developers, is probably the best platform for learning R.  I  
recently built a Linux box with a Pentium D processor, and am running  
an AMD64 port of Ubuntu with the SMP kernel.

After setting up the basics on the box, I thought I'd install R as  
well. I've had a very hard time finding good documentation on some  
configure flags/options for compiling a 64-bit version of R on  
Linux.  I thought this was very strange, considering Linux is  
apparently the R developer's platform of choice.

Can anyone point me to some good build instructions for 64-bit R  
under Linux?  Should I compile it against any additional libraries  
for better performance?

Thanks in advance for any pointers.
