[R] R CMD INSTALL -l /path/to/library packagename

OS: Linux Mandrake 10.1
release: R 2.1.1
editor: GNU Emacs 21.3.2
front-end: ESS 5.2.3


Since I upgraded to R 2.1.1, I am getting a an error message from R CMD
INSTALL packagename that says
R_HOME ('/usr/local/lib/R') not found. 

That's not too surprising, since R is now in /usr/lib/R, but what is
confusing me is that 
R CMD INSTALL -l /path/to/library packagename is giving me the same message,
suggesting that I am misusing the -lib switch when I enter
R CMD INSTALL -l /usr/lib/R/library waveslim_1.5.tar.gz

I'm sure the fix is trivial, but I can't see it for looking in the manual.
Any help appreciated.
