[R] ESS does not recognize installed libraries

Thank you Adaikalavan.

The problem was not due to simultaneous multiple versions of R.
The problem was due to missing directories in library path and this has 
cured by adding the missing library path using .libPaths().
However, it is uncertain how the same R program has different library 
and how it disappeared in some previous R sessions.
