[R-SIG-Mac] Install issues and R CMD INSTALL error

I'm trying to get spgrass6 installed and working on my system. I'm
running R 2.6.1 and R gui 1.23 - devel (4901) and Mac OS 10.5.1
I got the required package rgdal (binary) from the kingchaos site and
that installed fine. I checked the "At System Level in R framework)
option". Then I got the spgrass 6 source and did a source install,
which appeared to run fine. I can load both the rgdal and the spgrass6
package in the package manager, or with a library call when using R
However, my understanding of the process is that I should be running R
via the command line from within GRASS in order to link the two to run
the stats I need. When I try to load the libraries from R within GRASS
I get the following errors:
Error in library(rgdal) : there is no package called 'rgdal'
Error in library(spgrass6) : there is no package called 'spgrass6'
So somehow these packages are being installed somewhere that the
commanline R cannot see. Since I cannot seem to find out where this is
I decided to try to re-install these libraries.
So when I try to run the install I get.....
> R CMD INSTALL /Users/knussear/Downloads/spgrass6_0.4-4.tar.gz
Error: unexpected symbol in "R CMD"
so now I'm pretty stuck on both fronts!
Does anyone know of a solution?
