[R] suppress tick labels

I think the question was about the __tick mark__ labels not the __axis__
labels. The standard way of dealing with this is, as Sebastian said, to draw
customized axes. However, par(lab=c(1,5,5)) reduces the number of tick mark
labels to 2 at the range of the axes, apparently, if that helps.
lab=c(0,5,5)), which one might try to remove the labels, gives an error.
