We have built R 1.4.1 on Red Hat 7.1 for use on both Red Hat 7.1 and 7.2.

Running R on Red Hat 7.2 fails with the following error message:

$ R
/usr/local/r-1.4.1/lib/R/bin/R.bin: error while loading shared libraries: 
libreadline.so.4.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

This is because Red Hat 7.1 provides readline-4.1 while Red Hat 7.2. provides
readline-4.2. Both are supposed to be binary compatible.

R should attempt to load  libreadline.so.4 instead of libreadline.so.4.1.
