Well perhaps I just didn't persist long enough, but I posted a message when I
was having trouble in 0.60 and got a response that the private library mechanism
was not working correctly. I am setting the environment variable RLIBS. I have
tried several variations with no success. One problem is that parts of the R
INSTALL seem to work, but not enough so the UNINSTALL works, so it is hard to
get back to a clean starting point.

Following is what I think I should do to install two private libraries
(packages). Could you please contrast what you do with this.

1/ put code into files   .../Rdse/tframe/R/tframe.R and .../Rdse/dse/R/dse.R

2/ cd to .../Rdse and
      INSTALL R tframe tframe
      INSTALL R dse dse

3/ RLIBS=.../Rdse    export RLIBS

4/ start R and then library() should indicate the two packages in the .../Rdse
    library("tframe") ; library("dse")  should load the libraries.

Thanks in advance.
