I can install R with
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install r-base
this is not my problem, and indeed, not my question. my question was how
could I share the resulting R installation over NFS? Do I have to export
every location where apt-get installs a component or can I force apt-get to
place the installation in a certain location?
