Just curious - does that mean that ${R_INCLUDE_DIR}${R_ARCH} should  
actually be somewhere else than in ${R_INCLUDE_DIR}, because strictly  
speaking it is not architecture independent? It seems to me that  
would just make things even more messy, and I'm wondering what Debian  
does in that case ... In fact I can't even find examples for either  
on my Debian machines (except for Sun's Java which seems to use /usr/ 
lib as R used to) ...
