It is a bug, and you should expect it not to work. :)

The problem is that libraries are installed by R INSTALL, not by recursive
make. Using gmake at the top level means that it is used recursively in
all the subdirectories, but in order to change the behaviour of R INSTALL
you need to tell _configure_ to use gmake.
