[R] recompile R using ActiveTcl

Dear all,

While running some code requiring the "tcltk" package I have realised that my 
version of R was compiled with the Tcl/Tk libraries included in Fedora 6. It 
would be for me better to use the ActiveTcl libraries (which I have 
under /usr/local), and I'm aware that this probably means to recompile R with 
the proper configuration variables.

But...is it by any chance possible to "just" recompile the bit affected by 
Tcl/Tk, like, for instance, to install tcltk with some environment variable 
pointing at the right ActiveTcl library?

Many thanks for your suggestions and help.
