[R] R-2.9.0 on CentOS 5 installation?

Has anyone else had experience with CentOS and the latest version of R?

$uname -r

On occasion, I need to have the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable
which I set in ~/.bash_profile.  Until R-2.9.0 that has worked fine,
but now when I check with Sys.getenv("LD_LIBRARY_PATH"), I see it's
not set.  It appears to me that it's not something that can be set
after R has started.

The problem doesn't exist with Fedora 8, nor with Mepis 6.5 in my
experience, and I've been informed that Fedora 9 doesn't have the
problem either.

Has anyone else seen it?  Particularly with CentOS.
