[R-SIG-Mac] possible bug in R's make install

I am trying to compile and install R under High Sierra with Accelerate BLAS
but with R lapack.

My relevant configure call is   --with-blas="-framework Accelerate" but
omitting --with-lapack. Full call is pasted at the end of this email

I can do
  make check
but make install fails with

make[2]: Nothing to be done for `install'.
/usr/local/clang6/bin/clang -I. -I../../src/include
-I../../../R-3.5.x-src/src/include -I/opt/X11/include -I/usr/local/include
-DHAVE_CONFIG_H    -Wall -mtune=native -g -O2  -L/usr/local/clang6/lib
-L/usr/local/lib -L/usr/local/opt/tcl-tk/lib
-DR_HOME='"/usr/local/R/R-3.5.x/lib/R"' \
  -o Rscript ../../../R-3.5.x-src/src/unix/Rscript.c
mkdir /usr/local/R/R-3.5.x/lib/R/bin/exec
mkdir /usr/local/R/R-3.5.x/lib/R/modules
cp: /usr/local/R/R-3.5.x/lib/R/lib/libRlapack.dylib: No such file or
make[3]: *** [install] Error 1
make[2]: *** [install] Error 1
make[1]: *** [install] Error 1
make: *** [install] Error 1

I manually verified that libRlapack.dylib had been build in the building
directory's "lib".  I then just did

sudo mkdir /usr/local/R/R-3.5.x/lib/R/lib

(my installation directory is /usr/local/R/R-3.5.x) and redid make install
which now worked.  I get

$ ls /usr/local/R/R-3.5.x/lib/R/lib

My _guess_ is that since I am using R's lapack and system BLAS that the
RHOME/lib directory does not get created.

Btw., this might be a bad idea (happy to hear about this) but the
installation should work since I can do make check
