[R] How to build R on Mac to keep packages running?

Hi there,
I am trying to install RApache on my Mac
(see http://worldofrcraft.blogspot.com/2010/08/installing-rapache-on-mac-os-x-snow.html).

I needed to build R with --enable-R-shlib option, so very naively did the following

./configure --enable-R-shlib
sudo make install

RApache runs like a charm now, but when I want to start my R.app, it does not start. Only my R64.app is starting, but not all packages are running with R64.app.

Where can I find the magic configure-charms used to configure and build R for the Mac platform?
