[R] building R on freebsd 6.2 (amd64)

I updated my os to freebsd 6.2 and built R-patched with no changes in
configure. I pass make check and copy the R executable to
/usr/local/bin/R. Then when I start R, I get

/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: Shared object "libRblas.so" not found, required by "R"

and have to copy/link the two shared object files (libRblas.so and
libRlapack.so) to somewhere "visible" like /usr/local/lib/ as well. I
didn't have to do this last step in freebsd 6.1. Is there some
configure setting I can use to avoid having to move the two shared
object files?
