  Are you logged in as user 'bcdesai'? Because only that username can 
read the libRmath files in /usr/lib.

  If you are logged in as bcdesai and its still not working, then it 
wouldn't surprise me if linux was paranoid enough to not allow you to 
link to libraries not owned by 'root' in /usr/lib.

  So, change the owner to root and the permissions to 755 and try again. 
You may need your friendly local sysadmin to do this. Or 'bcdesai'.
