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

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


The environment variables checked with Sys.getenv() all appeared to be in
the right place.

The easy fix was to copy /usr/lib/R into /usr/local/lib/R
then run the R CMD INSTALL packagename
then just copy the package subdirectory back to  /usr/lib/R/library

A cheat fix, but it worked.
