I checked this more precisely: the reason seems to be not the
presence of '.Renviron' in the home dir, but rather the presence of
$R_LIBS in the environment (whereever defined). nevertheless: if the GUI
states that it's going to install in R.framework and then does'nt (even 
if it is my problem that I have defined R_LIBS in the first place) I 
would think this is not desirable behaviour.


hope, this is not known, yet:
the package installer (R 1.01 (v1.01))ignores the "install at system
level" button, at least if there is a ".Renviron" in the user's home
directory (who installs the package). instead, the first entry of
"R_LIBS" is used as target directory.

a bug, probably?

best regards,
