I think Benilton did a
   make install
after he compiled R. Benilton: I believe most of us just compiles R,  
stopping after the make step and then just do R-devel/bin/R CMD ....,  
ie. running R directly from the build directory instead of installing  
it on the system. Given that you have already build R, it should be a  
2 sec. test :) Of course, that may not help at all....
