The R front end sets LD_LIBRARY_PATH to include the place it puts libR.so.
It looks like that is not effective on your machine, but you will have to
investigate for us why. I am pretty sure other FreeBSD users (6.2 and 7)
on AMD64 reported success on R 2.4.x.
How does FreeBSD 6.2 handle 64-bit systems? Most OSes would use
/usr/local/lib64, and there is a configure setting LIBnn to cover that
Another solution for ELF systems is to include R_HOME/lib in the list of
directories known to ldconfig.
