Your package bypasses the shlib building process and does not even  
link to libR. The fix-up code doesn't expect anything like that,  
because the consequence is that the `.so's don't contain the path to  
R and hence it is not possible to determine the correct path for the  
libraries (stdc++, gcc_s) that come shipped with R from the so itself.

Your package is the only one on CRAN with this issue. Although the  
behavior is legal, I would recommend rather using Makevars  
instead ;). For now I have fixed it manually and I'll see if I can  
get around the problem.
