You can do this through your .Rprofile file, or site-wide through the 
RHOME/etc/Rprofile file.  There's an example of the latter in the 
?Startup man page.   It can also be done by defining the environment 


but then *only* the packages you list will be attached (i.e. splines in 
the example above); you're probably better off working with .Rprofile.
