[R] path related problem XEmacs Unix

Hi there,

May I ask the following question.
Our Solaris installation of Xemacs and R:

SunOS fluke 5.9 Generic_117171-02 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-480R

one cannot start R inside xemacs:
M-x R

"symbol's function definition is void".

Also, loading a *.tex file into Xemacs will result in

"loading tex mode .. done", but the additional buttons to call TeX 
related processes do not show.

Last week everything was working fine both for R and TeX, but suddenly 
things got broken. May be this has something to do with compiling the 
patch 1.9.0..?

To me it is looking like a path problem. So, to find out, I would think 
of a mode in Xemacs that that traces the startup of R tells me, which 
file it was not able to find and why (environment variable wrong, ...)

Can anybody please give a hint?
