[R] loadhistory() in .Rprofile ?

dear wizards:  my .Rprofile has just one command for testing,
but this gives me an error on R startup:
  Error: couldn't find function "loadhistory"
Invoking loadhistory() as the first interactive command works fine; 
incidentally, I believe loadhistory() in the .Rprofile worked in 
earlier or other platform R releases, too.

Is the .Rprofile now loaded before loadhistory()?  if so, this seems to 
make it impossible to set up one big history file across directories 
(save history prior to exit, then reload automatically on entry).  if 
not, I probably screwed something up---again.

regards, /iaw

PS: my earlier amd64 gentoo problem was caused by my use of f2c, which 
apparently is not happy on amd64 platforms.  thanks to those who let me 
know the problem.
